It is our pleasure to welcome you to participate in the fourth UK Catalysis Conference (UKCC) which will take place at Holywell Park, Loughborough over 3rd to 5th January 2018. The meeting will provide an opportunity for catalytic scientists and engineers from across the UK’s academic and industrial communities to interact and network over the whole spectrum of Catalysis ranging from Organocatalysis, Biocatalysis, Homogenous catalysis and Heterogeneous catalysis.
The scientific programme will be organised around the following all aspects of catalysis: Organo/Biocatalysis, Heterogeneous Catalysis, Homogeneous Catalysis and Engineering. In addition, two themed symposiums will also be organised entitled "Polymerisation Catalysis" and "Dial-a-Molecule: Catalytically".
We are pleased to announce that our plenary speakers in 2018 will be Adrian Mulholland (Bristol University, UK), Louise Olsson (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden), Moniek Trump (University of Amsterdam, Netherlands) and Karen Wilson (Aston University, UK).

It is £400 for PDRA, Academic, Industry & Government registrations and £330 for PhD student and Emeritus registrations. Accommodation will be arranged for participants upon registration.
A number of bursaries of £100 for early career researchers, excluding PhD students, are available to assist with participation in the UKCC2018.
