In 2019, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table. Therefore, 2019 has been proclaimed the "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019)" by the United Nations General Assembly and UNESCO.This is a good reason to reflect on the past, the present and the future of the well-known table which connects scientists, historians, and philosophers.

KVCV, VeLeWe, and Universiteit Antwerpen, The Netherlands, are celebrating this with keynote lectures of Eric Scerri, a world authority on the history and philosophy of the periodic table, Sammy Verbruggen, Titanium in the Periodic Table of Younger Chemists, and Jan Tytgat, director Government Affairs EU at Umicore, one of the world's largest precious metals recycling companies.
