Green Innovation in Chemistry: Catalyzing Sustainable Solutions for a Greener Tomorrow

The International Conference for Young Chemists (ICYC) is a biennial conference organized by the postgraduate students from the School of Chemical Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia. This conference aims to bring local and international researchers  together to facilitate interaction and networking among researchers in chemistry. The idea of this conference started in 2001, when it was known as the Regional Conference for Young Chemists (RCYC), targeting postgraduate students and researchers from the Asia Pacific Region (Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, India and Japan). Since then, the Regional Conference for Young Chemists (RCYC) has evolved and rebranded to The International Conference for Young Chemists (ICYC) that we know today. Researchers from all over the world were invited to attend the conference rather than targeting the Asia Pacific region.  

Exposure and knowledge sharing are vital in nurturing young chemists. Therefore, the organizing committees have decided to organize the conference to provide international exposure to foster the relationship of both local and international postgraduate researchers, as well as other researchers from all over the world. It is hoped that the upcoming 9th International Conference for Young Chemists (9th ICYC) will be a successful conference and the legacy of chemistry will live on forever.  

The 9th ICYC is your chance to connect with fellow chemists, learn from experts, and be a part of driving innovation in chemistry for greener tomorrow!
