Tēnā koutou,

It is our pleasure to invite you to be part of NZIC 2022 which will be held in Auckland from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th November 2022. The New Zealand Institute of Chemistry (NZIC) is New Zealand’s professional chemistry body consisting of over 800 members across the country and across all fields of the chemical sciences. The NZIC conference series is a biennual event featuring presentations of the latest research across all fields of the chemical sciences from within New Zealand and overseas alongside networking opportunities to stimulate new connections and collaborations.

Chemical scientists of all disciplines including chemical education, biological, organic, inorganic, physical, materials and analytical chemistry from within New Zealand and abroad are encouraged to attend and present their latest findings.

We look forward to welcoming you to Auckland in November for this exciting and intellectually stimulating event.

Ngā manaakitanga,

The NZIC 2022 Organising Committee
