Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. The conference must be located in a country represented in IUPAC by a National Adhering Organization. See program details.

Natural humic systems and ecoadaptive technologies: On the path to chemical, industrial, and regulatory identities

Humic systems chemistry is a fascinating field of modern science and a real new direction in chemistry.  The organizers of IHSS-21 believe that IUPAC support to this field of chemistry will provide invaluable contribution in elevating its status and drawing attention of young chemists to this complex molecular systems and to redefine the widely accepted generic name “humic substances” as “humic system” by providing chemical constraints to this term.
The Opening ceremony of the IHSS-21 will take place at the Lomonosov Moscow State University. The conference location will be a ship travelling from Moscow to Yaroslavl (maximum capacity – 200 people). The ship will embark from Moscow on September 17 and arrive back to Moscow on September 23, 2022

The program will cover:
– Conceptualization and implementation of chemical definition of humic systems:* analytics, machine learning, systems’ chemistry, standardization, regulatory issues
– Soil humic systems in sustaining soil fertility, soil restoration, carbon sequestration, carbon accounting
– Aquatic humic systems in ocean- river interactions, global climate change, mitigation of anthropogenic impact
– Advanced processing of fossil and renewable organic raw materials and separation technologies for humic systems
– Rational design and application of nature-like humic materials and ecoadaptive technologies
– Non-living organic matter and living systems: environmental and human health
