The RACI Centenary Congress is a congress of independent conferences running concurrently in the same venue that will bring together several thousand Australian and international delegates from across the breadth of the chemical sciences and technologies.
The registration process has been designed to extract sufficient data from a complex event to allow efficient logistical planning to be made to ensure delegates experience a well organised meeting with minimal disruption.
The novel congress concept involves nine partner conferences, each maintaining their identity, running an independent program during the week while availing the delegates the opportunity to access alternative sessions across a wide variety of chemical science disciplines at no extra cost.
Your conference of choice may only be a three day event however delegates who wish to remain and attend other meeting sessions may register for additional days as per the categories and rates outlined below.
With all the options available it’s important that the registration forms are completed as accurately as possible.
The register now button below will take you to your chosen meeting’s registration pages.
