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.

The theme for GWB2020 is “Building bonds to create future leaders”.
Women and men from all types of educational and scientific organizations from high schools to universities, to scientific societies, government and industry organizations are welcome to organize breakfast events. Breakfast events can be small or large, and we encourage each breakfast team to reach out and form a new bond with another team. These bonds will depend upon the needs of your team: research partners, mentor/mentee, colleagues, educational resources, job opportunities, etc.
