This conference will provide participants with academic, industrial, and government laboratories with a unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with the cutting edge of current chemistry in Europe, to renew old acquaintances, and to establish new contacts. An exhibition will be an excellent opportunity for learning about the latest advances in commercial products and for networking. Students and chemists in early stages of their careers are particularly welcome.

The ten main sections, each hosting several symposia, will provide a feast for the curious spirit, with chemistry for a sustainable world as the unifying theme. The following areas of chemistry will be covered: (i) analytical and electro, (ii) education and history, (iii) food, (iv) environmental, energy and green, (v) inorganic, (vi) life science, (vii) nano, (viii) organic and polymer, (ix) physical, theoretical, and computational, and (x) solid state.

Chairman of the local organizing committee: Pavel Drasar

Special Events:

  • Special symposium: Organic chemistry highlights
    Josef Michl, US
  • Special symposium: Ethics in Science - Chemistry and Ethics
    Frank Hartmut, DE
  • Special guest of Congress and dramatic interlude of the Special Symposium:
    Djerassi Carl, Stanford University, USA, author of "Insufficiency"
  • Staged dramatic reading directed by Zdenek Havlas Jr. of Djerassi's newest "science-in-theatre" play dealing with the science of "bubbleology" as applied to champagne and beer with a few digs along the way at the foibles of academic publishing, academic snobbery, and academic tenure. An apt illustration of themes pertaining to the “Ethics in Science - Chemistry and Ethics” Congress special topic, but actually of relevance to the entire chemical community.
