At the beginning of the press conference, Prof. Scott presented an outline and history of CS3, and the white paper of the 5th CS3. This was followed by topical presentations by the five chemical society representatives.
It is expected that this CS3 will trigger expansion of international cooperation in this field.
This was the final event of the first round of CS3, and the second round is planned to begin with a conference in Germany in September, 2015.
