APACE was officially inaugurated at a symposium meeting held in conjunction with Third Asia-Pacific Conference of Entomology in Taichung, Taiwan on 21 November 1997. APACE is organized to promote the understanding of interactions between organisms and their environments that are mediated by naturally occurring chemicals. Research areas include the study of structure, function, synthesis and biosynthesis of natural products related to organisms, their importance at all levels of ecological organization, their evolutionary origin and their practical application.
We cordially invite you to submit or recommend original research paper to the 8th Asia-Pacific Conference of Chemical Ecology (2015 APACE) through the Oxford Abstract Submission System. The conference will cover the recent discovery and development from basic research to practical application with regard to various chemical ecology disciplines. It will also provide a unique opportunity for industries to introduce their new technologies and establish new collaborations with scientists from universities and research institutes from Asia-Pacific regions. Please have a look at our conference website for more details (www.regonline.com/APACE2015). We look forward to receiving your submission.
