The 14th Osaka City University International Symposium on
Chemistry and Topology
November 19, 2009
Venue:OCU Media Center, Osaka City University, Osaka, Japan

The 14th Osaka City University International Symposium on Chemistry and Topology is held at Sugimoto Campus of Osaka City University. The 14th OCU Symposium will cover advanced research fields in chemistry and materials science as well as interdisciplinary fields in pure and applied sciences. Distinguished scientists from overseas will give stimulating lectures. The symposium is under the auspices of the Osaka City University Priority Research on "Mathematical knot and evolution to scientific objects."
