Lass shines in international confab-A A +A
Sunday, July 1, 2012
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – A young lass from Barangay San Agustin in this city made history recently as the youngest delegate to present a scientific study at the 2012 International Conference on Chemical and Biological Processes (ICCBP) held on June 21 to 23 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Mayor Oscar Rodriguez personally welcomed Kim Ivy Apostol back after she successfully presented before the international chemical and biological community her study on toxicology conducted by her team at the University of the Philippines.
It was Rodriguez who granted Apostol financial assistance for the trip and her attendance to the ICCBP 2012.
“Sayang ang galing ng mga Fernandino kung hindi natin tutulungan,” he said.
The ICCBP aims to provide a forum for laying the foundations of a new principled approach to chemical and biological processes, particularly water and wastewater treatment, as well as to attract participants with different backgrounds; to foster cross-pollination between different research fields; and to expose and discuss innovative theories, frameworks, methodologies, tools, and applications.
The ICCBP 2012 was co-sponsored by the World Academy of Research and Publications. Submitted papers and studies, like that of Apostol’s, will be reviewed by technical committees of the conference and will be selected for publication in the International Journal of Chemical & Environmental Engineering that is indexed in DOAJ, INDEX COPEN, Academic Resources, and EISRJC.
