We are pleased to invite you to the SCS Fall Meeting 2020, one of the largest annual research conferences held in Switzerland. For the first time the Fall Meeting takes place as an online conference to fulfill the regulations of the government and to facilitate safe exchange of scientific information.


SCS Fall Meeting 2020
Online Conference
Tuesday, 25. August 2020, 08:30 – 18:00

For generations of young chemists educated in Switzerland, the Fall Meeting has been a great platform to present their research –often for the first time ever at a major conference- and to be inspired by the people one gets to meet.

The Scientific Program offers Award Lectures presented by leaders in their respective fields, as well as invited and contributed lectures in nine thematic sessions covering all of chemistry. For each of these, there also is a virtual poster session. 

Program Highlights:

  • Two plenary sessions with lectures of SCS price winners 2020
  • Virtual Poster Session during the whole week
  • Nine thematic parallel sessions with key note lectures and 15min PhD presentations
  • Best oral and best virtual poster presentation award ceremony

Topics of the parallel sessions are

  • Analytical Sciences
  • Catalysis Science & Engineering
  • Computational Chemistry
  • Inorganic & Coordination Chemistry
  • Medicinal Chemistry & Chemical Biology
  • Organic Chemistry
  • Physical Chemistry
  • Polymers, Colloids & Interfaces
  • Chemistry and the Environment

New Session of Chemistry and the Environment: “We welcome abstracts from scientists and engineers engaged in all research areas related to chemical processes that (bio)molecules undergo in the environment and their impact on the environment. This includes atmospheric, aquatic and soil chemistry, and the effect of molecules on living organisms.”

*The call for contributions for the nine parallel sessions and the poster sessions is open. 
Abstract submission deadline is May 31, 2020. Please note: there will be no extension of the deadline.
