49th Silicon Symposium

49th Silicon Symposium: Celebrating the Chemistry of Bob West, to be held in conjunction with the 101st Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition

A very special Si Symposium, honouring Bob West on his 90th birthday and celebrating his chemistry, will be held in Edmonton, Canada, May 29-31, 2018 in conjunction with the 101st Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition. In addition, we will be honouring Tamejiro Hiayama who will be receiving the Frederic Stanley Kipping Award in Silicon Chemistry at the spring ACS meeting.

We will also be celebrating the chemistry of Jillian Buriak, the 2018 winner of the CSC Rio Tinto Alcan Award. Her pioneering research in the organic functionalization of silicon surfaces has impacted a variety of fields ranging from biology to electronics.
