Established in 1996, the Asian Photochemistry Conference (APC) aims to provide photochemists and scientists in related fields a major forum to discuss their latest developments in fundamental and applied photochemistry and related sciences. Since the inauguration conference in Hong Kong, APC has been successfully held in various countries including Korea, India, Taiwan, China, New Zealand, and Japan.

Singapore will be hosting the 9th Asian Photochemistry Conference (APC 2016) in the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) campus from 4 - 8 December 2016. In this conference, eminent international, Asian and Oceanian scientists will present their cutting edge research in the areas of photochemistry, photophysics, photobiology, imaging, microscopy and spectroscopy applications.

The Organizing Committee welcomes you to participate in APC 2016.
