3rd International Caparica Christmas Conference on Translational Chemistry 2019

02nd – 05th December 2019 | Caparica | Portugal

Dear Colleagues and friends

From the very beginning, Chemistry started with Alchemy and it has been the mother of all Sciences, always walking hand in hand with Physics. Chemistry is everywhere in our daily lives, in our foods, in our cloths, living in our houses and affecting our health. We are mainly Chemistry.

Currently, the chemistry science integrates all its small areas: organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry; and the most specific areas: biochemistry, environmental chemistry, chemical engineering, materials chemistry, nanochemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry and medicinal chemistry among others. Chemistry impacts the economical development of countries and continents.

However, knowledge of Chemistry has also been misapplied, as well as, as Chemistry has facilitated the misuse of pesticides and fertilizers, general global contamination, unhealthy artificial food, etc.

The Third International Christmas Caparica Congress in Translational Chemistry IC3TC-2019 is intended to be an International forum to share the most recent knowledge in Translational Chemistry, to help defend the name of Chemistry worldwide and to acknowledge the value of Chemistry, a central science for a better living.

The conference venue is located in one of the most beautiful places in Europe, Lisbon, Portugal and its surroundings. During Christmas time, the month of December, the location Lisbon-Caparica is bright and warm, making it an ideal place to spend a nice couple of days.

Yours truly

Hotel Aldeia dos Capuchos

Be aware of cold calls from Convention Hotel Services (CHS) or from someone named Adam Max! A company called CHS (Convention Hotel Services) is calling or e-mailing attendees of conferences worldwide, claiming to work for the conference organizers and asking for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation. If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! None of the parties involved in the organization of IC3TC 2019 is working with CHS

We have received some alerts from participants this week regarding this email: Ehotel Services via DocuSign .

If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! This problem affects many conferences, not only the PROTEOMASS BIOSCOPE conferences.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

With kindest regards
