Welcome to the 2016 Fall Meeting of the Swiss Chemical Society
On behalf of the Division of Fundamental Research of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS), we are pleased to invite you to the Fall Meeting of the Swiss Chemical Society on September 15, 2016. As in 2014, this year’s Fall Meeting is organized jointly by ETH Zürich and the University of Zürich; the event will take place at the University of Zürich Irchel campus.
The Swiss Chemical Society Fall Meeting is the largest annual scientific event in Switzerland. It offers a unique opportunity for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and scientists of all levels, from both, academia and industry, to share the results of their research projects. It also stimulates the exchange of ideas between all generations of chemists, often creating the seeds for new projects and collaborations.
One of the highlights of this year’s Fall Meeting will be the Paracelsus Award Lecture presented by Prof. Michael Graetzel of the EPF Lausanne. The Scientific Program will offer invited and contributed lectures as well as poster presentations in the following areas of chemistry:
- Analytical Sciences
- Catalysis Science & Engineering
- Computational Chemistry
- Inorganic & Coordination Chemistry
- Medicinal Chemistry & Chemical Biology
- Organic Chemistry
- Physical Chemistry
- Polymers, Colloids & Interfaces.
As in previous years, the best poster presentations and oral contributions in each session will be awarded prizes. There will also be a Commercial Exhibition.
We encourage you to come to Zürich to present your research and to be part of a vibrant meeting. We look forward to seeing you!
