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. See program details.

  • Light energy conversion
  • Photochemical reactions and intermediates
  • Artificial molecular switches and motors
  • Photo-mechanical materials
  • Imaging and sensing
  • Single-molecule photochemistry
  • Photomedicine
  • Photobiology
  • Emerging techniques and applications
