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.

Chemistry, a lever for sustainable development of African countries

Annual Days of Chemistry of Senegal & 9th FASC Congress (FASC|JACS 2024)

Senegal will host the African Chemical Societies for the General Assembly of the Federation of African Societies of Chemistry (FASC). It will be held in conjunction with the Annual Days of Chemistry of Senegal (Journées Annuelles de Chimie du Sénégal – JACS), the major event of the Senegalese Committee for Chemistry (CSC), from 19 to 21 November 2024 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Dakar Sea Plaza, Corniche Ouest, Dakar, Senegal. The conference is themed “Chemistry, a lever for sustainable development of African countries“.

FASC|JACS 2024 will be jointly organized by CSC and FASC along with their partners among which are RSC, ACS, IUPAC, OPCW and West African Society of Chemistry (SOACHIM/Senegal) and in collaboration with Senegalese universities. The aim of this conference is not only to bring together Africa’s scientific, technological and industrial communities, but also to rethink together a structurally sustainable development centered on mankind and its priority investments. Chemistry is heavily involved in solving problems of African societies linked to health, energy, environment, water supply and nutrition, and therefore plays a key role in the sustainable development of African countries.
The Covid 19 crisis revealed the fragility of African economies and the need for genuine policies of sovereignty in the fields of pharmaceuticals, health, food, energy and more.

The following topics will be developed around the general theme:

1. Green Chemistry
2. Sustainable Materials for Chemistry
3. Chemistry of Water and Environment
4. Electrochemistry and Nanotechnology
5. Chemistry and health
6. Chemical Safety and Security
