On July 3-8, 2016, the International Conference on Catalysis, ICC-2016, was held in Beijing. Kees-Jan Weststrate presented his recent work on the mechanism of the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis for a large audience of at least 350. The Fischer-Tropsch sessions, which extended over 1.5 day, were one of the highlights of this conference, with all the major international research groups in this area appearing in the program. The ICC-2016 was held in the Chinese National Conference Center at the Oympic Grounds of Beijing, and was attended by 2500 participants. The event was perfectly organized under the direction of Professor Can Li of Dalian, and greatly enjoyed by participants from all over the world.
