We would like to thank all delegates and participants for your contributions to the Second International Collaborative and Cooperative Chemistry Symposium, which was held at The University of Queensland's St Lucia Campus from 31 October to 2 November. We had 35 international speakers from seven different Universities across Asia, as well as five speakers from The University of Queensland.

If you would like to give feedback, or have question about the Symposium, please contact us.

We have also set up a Flickr account to view photos from the Symposium. To view this, please click here.
