The 2nd EuCheMS Chemistry Congress will be co-organised by EuCheMS (European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences) and SCI (Società Chimica Italiana), the hosting society. It is a very important event for all the European societies of chemistry and a large participation of members is expected, coming from universities, industries, and both public and private institutions for research and analysis.
As stated by EuCheMS, the main aims of these Congresses, which bring together all branches of chemical and molecular sciences, are:
The Congress will be organised in common sessions, with plenary lectures given by outstanding scientists, and parallel sessions, focusing on important areas of chemistry. The programme of these parallel symposia will include keynote lectures and invited lectures, as well as oral and poster communications selected on the basis of abstract submission.
- to promote chemistry and chemical sciences at the cutting edge;
- to foster collaboration among scientists in research, industry, education in support of chemistry in Europe;
- to enhance the image of chemistry.
