The field of gold science and technology continues to undergo an exciting period of discovery. Many scientists and technologists in academia and industry have expressed the need for a forum where they can come together to learn of and discuss the latest advances, with the overall objective of encouraging important new industrial applications for gold.World Gold Council and the University of Limerick are pleased, therefore, to announce their co-sponsorship of the International Conference on the Science, Technology and Industrial Applications of Gold, which will be held in Limerick during from 3rd to 6th September 2006.This conference follows the successful and stimulating ‘Catalytic Gold’ conference held in Cape Town, South Africa in April 2001 and the ‘Gold 2003 – New Industrial Applications for Gold’ conference held in Vancouver, Canada (, and builds on the more general meeting on ‘Progress in the Science and Technology of Gold’ which took place in Hanau, Germany in June 1996. The ‘Gold 2006’ conference will cover all aspects of the science, technology and applications of gold under the principal themes: · Catalysis· Chemistry· Nanotechnology· MaterialsSubmissions focussed on end applications are particularly encouraged.Each theme will be introduced by an invited senior keynote speaker who will review the major scientific issues in the field. The programme for each of these themes will be organised by separate technical committees. The programme will be especially designed to ensure that industrial participants can assess the potential application of recent advances in research on gold and open discussion will be encouraged. There will also be an interesting and attractive spouse/partners programme.
