IUPAC|CHAINS2023 49th IUPAC World Chemistry Congress & 52nd IUPAC General Assembly & 11th CHAINS (IUPAC 2023)

The event brings together all disciplines of chemistry, a diverse audience of chemists from both academia and industry, and from all around the globe. Apart from plenary and keynote lectures, the congress will include parallel sessions with oral presentations, working group meetings and poster presentations by junior and senior researchers.

IUPAC|CHAINS2023 is organized by the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society (KNCV) and the Dutch Research Council (NWO). The IUPAC World Chemistry Congress is organized biennially with recent previous editions in Sao Paolo (2017), Paris (2019) and digitally in Montreal (2021). In 2023 we expect to welcome you on location in The Hague to meet each other in person.
