We are pleased to invite you to join us in the beautiful city The Hague for IUPAC|CHAINS2023 in August 2023. This conference, which combines the 49th IUPAC World Chemistry Congress and the 11th edition of the Dutch Chemistry Conference CHAINS, will take place from 20 till 25 August.

The theme of the conference is ‘Connecting Chemical Worlds’, and this is exactly what we aim to do. Connecting different disciplines of chemistry and getting academia, industry, junior and senior researchers to share what they love most about this beautiful science and help chemistry in answering the problems of tomorrow.

We hope to present an exciting program with plenary and invited lectures, parallel sessions, poster- and oral presentations. The first six plenary speakers are already announced, and we are excited to receive renowned scientist like Chad Mirkin, Jennifer Thomson and Nicola Spaldin.
