The International Conference and Exhibition on Green Chemistry and Engineering (OLCGCE-2020) is organized by OLC International and will be held at Krakow, Poland from December 07-08, 2020. The conference aims to address some of the pressing challenges in these areas which provide excellent research and development opportunities for the Green Chemistry community.
It will focus on ongoing research and provide new opportunities including the development of new chemistries by bringing in experts from industry and academia to focus on the latest advances and future directions in these disciplines to meet emerging challenges.
OLCGCE-2020 anticipates a worldwide audience including celebrated scientists, research fellows and professionals to come together on a global platform to share their specific research outcomes concerning these areas and to find solutions for challenges in these fields.
The symposia emphasizes different topics including materials recycling, waste valorization, physical and chemical separation processes among others. It will include several keynote lectures, plenary sessions, invited talks, video and poster sessions, interactive sessions among the participants, exhibitions showcasing products, technical workshops, and special social events to promote discussions and networking opportunities among academic and industry professionals to enhance their career and business goals.
OLCGCE-2020 allows scientists, researchers, chemists and engineers involved in these fields to make lasting changes that influence chemicals and their impact on the society and environment. We hope this conference will highlight the importance of an informative approach to green chemistry and engineering and calls for important discussions on topics concerning these fields.
We look forward to welcoming you to OLCGCE-2020 in Krakow, Poland.
Krakow, a southern Poland city near the border of the Czech Republic, is known for its well-preserved medieval core and Jewish quarter. Its old town – ringed by Planty Park and remnants of the city’s medieval walls – is centered on the stately, expansive Rynek Glówny (market square). This plaza is the site of the Cloth Hall, a Renaissance-era trading outpost, and St. Mary’s Basilica, a 14th-century Gothic church.
Top Things to do in Krakow, Poland:
The main branch of Poland's National Museum boasts around 780,000 art objects that span throughout history. The key draw for tourists, though, is its emphasis on Polish painting.
This 13th-century Wieliczka Salt Mine was in use until 2007. The miners had to spend so much time down there that they carved Catholic statues and chapels out of the rock salt!
For those worshipping above ground, this sightseeing essential has been the center of Krakow's religious life since the 11th century. Pope John Paul II was ordained at the Wawel Cathedral in 1946.
Keen hikers should allow time for a day trip to the region's scenic Bieszczady Mountains. It's pronounced Bee-esh-chardy, for those unfamiliar with Polish!
Significantly higher than the Bieszczady, a far tougher climb is rewarded with breathtaking views. We'd advise against taking Tatras' notoriously dangerous Orla Perć trail though!
Want to cover the main sights of Krakow in a day? Start your tour in the Old Town. The Krakow Main Square alone hosts Cloth Hall, the Town Hall Tower, and the Statue of Adam Mickiewicz.
Schindler’s Factory and the Krakus Mound are located in this area but be sure to wander away from these sights after you’ve thoroughly explored them for a more in-depth look at Polish life.
The architecture is unique and the square in Podgorze is quite impressive as well.
From the Krakow Ghetto Wall to incredible examples of world-famous street art, Podgorze has quite a lot to offer newcomers and is a great place to spend a few hours walking around away from the busy tourist crowds.
8. Rynek Underground Museum
Journey below the Main Market Square to a place where you can walk the medieval streets of ancient Krakow.
Roughly 10 years ago, portions of the Main Market Square were excavated, unearthing ancient market stalls, artifacts, and even a cemetery. In 2010, these archaeological treasures were transformed into a museum.
The Rynek Underground Museum is an interesting blend of medieval history and state-of-the-art technology. Touchscreens, video displays and digital reconstructions take you back to the middle ages in Krakow. And all the while, hundreds of tourists are walking across the Main Market Square, just over your head!
9. St Mary's Basilica
This striking brick church, best known simply as St Mary’s, is dominated by two towers of different heights. The first church here was built in the 1220s and following its destruction during a Tatar raid, construction of the basilica began. Tour the exquisite interior, with its remarkable carved wooden altarpiece, and in summer climb the tower (adult/concession 15/10zł) for excellent views. Don't miss the hourly hejnał (bugle call) from the taller tower.
The main church entrance, through a baroque portal added to the southwestern facade in the 1750s, is used by worshippers; tourists must enter through the side door to the southeast.
The chancel is illuminated by magnificent stained-glass windows dating from the late 14th century; the blue star vaulting of the nave is breathtaking.On the opposite side of the church, above the organ loft, is a fine art nouveau stained-glass window by Stanisław Wyspiański and Józef Mehoffer. The colourful wall paintings, designed by Jan Matejko, harmonise beautifully with the medieval architecture and are an appropriate background for the high altar, which is acclaimed as the greatest masterpiece of Gothic art in Poland and allegedly designated the eighth wonder of the world by Pablo Picasso.
