Synopsis

If you are interested in this meeting but not yet ready to register, you can sign up for updates here and our team will keep you updated regarding deadline reminders and grant opportunities relating to this meeting only.

This interdisciplinary conference will provide unique “fusion” opportunities for chemists, physicists and engineers having various backgrounds but sharing passion and interests in carbon-only or carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials. It will allow a diverse group of scientists from all over the globe to discuss the current challenges, needs and prospects of this quickly-evolving multidisciplinary field.

The major focus areas will range from newly designed methods of chemical synthesis, characterization, and structure determination of carbon-rich molecules and carbon-based materials to measurements of their functional properties and investigations into their potential practical applications. The types of carbon-rich molecules include (but are not limited to) π-bowls and π-baskets, carbon nanohoops, nanobelts and short segments of carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, graphene nanoribbons, and full-length nanotubes. This forum is designed to promote excellence in research and education and to facilitate the interchange of new information among a broad community of scientists.

We have wanted to contract with a property in the Riviera Maya for some time as it is a beautiful area of Mexico and has a very different vibe to the hustle and bustle of Cancun. Located just 8 miles from Tulum, this hidden gem is the perfect destination for those who love admiring, exploring or enjoying nature. Hilton Tulum Riviera Maya will captivate your senses with unparalleled natural views, bold flavors, clear blue skies, the gentle touch of the cool breeze and the irresistible aromas of this tropical paradise. We have a feeling this is going to be a new favourite amongst our delegates.

Hotel facilities include;

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi in guest rooms and throughout hotel and conference areas
  • Pools
  • Spa
  • Fitness Center
  • 9 Restaurants
  • Kids Club
  • Beach

Location

Stretching from the fishing village of Puerto Morelos to the biosphere reserve of Sian Ka'an, the Mayan Riviera offers an unforgettable Caribbean coastline experience with beautiful white-sand beaches and brilliant turquoise colored water. This world-renowned paradise is home to mangroves and lagoons, ancient Mayan cities, ecological reserves and adventure parks, and the world's second largest coral reef.

The hotel is located just a few miles from Tulum, a town on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It’s known for its spectacluar beaches and well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city. The area also offers incredible cavern diving opportunties and beautiful cenotes to explore. We would highly recommend joining one of the group activities to Tulum or the Gran Cenote - they will make for an unforgettable conference experience!
