University of California
Stephen Hanessian, OC, FRSC, (born April 25, 1935) is a chemist and professor of Canadian and United States citizenship born in Alexandria, Egypt. His research group at UniversitÃ© de MontrÃ©al is well known for developing synthetic methodologies, as well as natural product total synthesis. In addition, his group developed Chiron, a computer program used by organic chemists for synthetic planning. He earned his Ph.D. at Ohio State University in 1960, under the direction of M. L. Wolfrom. He worked as a researcher for Parke-Davis & Co. in Ann Arbor, Michigan until 1968. In 1969 he joined UniversitÃ© de MontrÃ©al. Since 2000, he is also an adjunct professor at University of California, Irvine.

John Muldoon received his BSc (Hons) degree in Chemistry from Queens University of Belfast. He completed his PhD degree at the University of Notre Dame under the direction of Professor Brown, studying air oxidation of organics using terminal oxo complexes of late transition metals. He worked as a Research Associate at the Scripps Research Institute under Professor Sharpless (Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2001) and Professor Fokin, developing applications of click chemistry including in-situ click chemistry to discover HIV protease inhibitors and acceleration for chemical reactions on water. He is currently a Principal Scientist at Toyota Research Institute of North America. His research interests include future energy solutions such as multivalent batteries, lithium/sulfur batteries, Li-ion batteries, all-solid batteries and fuel cells. He has numerous patents in the area of new battery chemistry and fuel cell.

University of Oldenburg Germany
Gerd Kaupp studied chemistry at the University of WÃ¼rzburg, Germany and had postdoctoral appointments at Ames, Iowa, Lausanne, and Freiburg i. Br, where he became appointed as associate professor. From there he was appointed full professor at the University of Oldenburg in 1982. He guided a successful research group with various projects and cooperation with numerous industries and worldwide academic research groups. He served as guest professor for three international universities. Prof. Kaupp is now a retired member at the University of Oldenburg and pursues his scientific interests also with consulting. His expertise is in chemical kinetics, laser photochemistry, waste-free benign syntheses and productions, solid-state chemistry, reactive milling, mechanochemistry, atomic force microscopy AFM, scanning near-field optical microscopy SNOM, nanoscratching, nanoindentation, standardization in nanomechanics, and bionics. He is keynote speaker in these fields, published numerous scientific papers and books and is inventor of patents in solid-state and environmental chemistry.
