The abstract booklet can be downloaded here.

It will be updated regularly.

Scientific program:

  • Sponsors: Please visit the sponsor booths just outside of the two Amphitheaters at Institut Le Bel.
  • Talks: The plenary talks will be in the Amphitheater 4 at Institut Le Bel. The other sessions are split between Amphitheaters 3 and 4. The allocated time for all talk formats includes 5 mins of questions and discussion.
  • Posters: The poster session is held on two floors in the Faculté de Chimie: The lower floor hosts posters A.1 – A.15 and F.1 – F.15. All other posters are on the upper floor. On the day of your poster, please locate your poster number and put up your poster up before the session. If your poster is on Monday, please remove it before Wednesday.
