Welcome to the 2019 Fall Meeting of the Swiss Chemical Society!

We are pleased to invite you the SCS Fall Meeting, one of the largest annual research conferences held in Switzerland. We expect close to 1'000 participants representing both, industry and academia.

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 you get to meet.

The Scientific Program offers Award Lectures presented by leaders in their respective fields, as well as invited and contributed lectures in eight thematic sessions (see box below). For each of these, there also is a poster session. All in all, we expect about 600 scientific presentations.

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

Finally, the best student oral and poster-presentations of each session will be awarded prizes. The SCS Metrohm and DSM Award Programs are among the most highly remunerated, and the Award Ceremony at the end of the meeting marks one of the highlights of the event.

We encourage you to come to Zurich to present your research and to be part of a vibrant meeting. We look forward to seeing you!
