2018 Programme

17 - 21 June 2018 - ISIEM2018**
The International Symposium on Inorganic and Environmental Materials 2018 (ISIEM2018) is organized by the Society of Inorganic Materials, Japan (SIMJ) and Ghent University, Belgium and will be held at Het Pand Convention Centre in Ghent.

The scope of the conference includes the newest developments in inorganic materials and their production with an emphasis on the environmental impact. Researchers will present fundamental concepts alongside cutting-edge developments on a broad range of topics including nanotechnology, energy related materials, cement/gypsum and lime, sustainable chemistry, catalysis and novel processing techniques. More information and registration is available on the symposium website.

20 September 2018 - Chemistry and the future of life on Earth
On Thursday 20 September we will welcome Prof David Cole-Hamilton of St Andrews University and current vice-president of EuCheMS, the European Chemical Society, who will describe some of the major problems facing the world and what Chemistry can do / is doing to alleviate them. This evening will also host the prize giving for our annual Chemistry Challenge for school students. More details to be provided soon.

24 - 25 September 2018 - A Celebration of Organic Chemistry**
On Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 September 2018, influential researchers from across Europe and the US will gather in at the UCB Pharma's site at Braine-l'Alleud, Belgium to present a series of lectures on the latest developments in the field of organic chemistry. This event, jointly organised by SCI’s Fine Chemicals Group and UCB, will celebrate the best of modern organic chemistry and will focus on the development of new methodology which enable the synthesis of complex molecules. The meeting will also provide a platform for early career researchers to share their vision for the future of organic chemistry. More details on the event and registration can be found here.
