Frontiers in Photochemistry Conference

18 Feb 2018 - 21 Feb 2018

Cancun, Mexico

The conference registration date has past

Synopsis

The conference will focus on the frontiers (or cutting-edge) of research in the photochemical sciences. Topics to be discussed are:

  • Spintronics
  • Photon Fusion/Singlet Fission
  • Perovskites
  • Energy Transfer within Metal Organic Frameworks
  • Photo-acids/photo-bases and photo-proton transport

Join the conference LinkedIn group to keep up to date with announcements and latest news concerning the conference.

Target Audience

Scientists working in the broad field of photochemical sciences will be interested in the conference. This may include those from academia, national laboratories, research institutes, and/or related industries. We expect a good mix of both young, emerging chemists and established leaders in the field. Additionally, efforts will be undertaken to provide representation across Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

Learning Objectives

  1. Introduce the newest advances (discovery, approaches, etc) in the field of photochemistry through presentations (oral and poster) and lively discussion.
  2. Develop a deeper understanding of photochemical principles, current research challenges, and the future of the field.
  3. Provide an environment for cross-talk between photochemical disciplines and to promote collaborations.

Student Offer

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for students! Register an academic at the standard rate of $1,798.00 and bring a student for only $745. Unfortunately, Postdocs are not eligible. Both registration packages include; accommodation for the 18th, 19th, 20th February 2018 (on a shared basis for students, note guest rooms are open plan) and a 24hour all-inclusive food and beverage package for the conference period. Once you have registered and paid in full, please contact Meredith Willmott (Meredith@fusion-conferences.com) to obtain a special registration link for your student.
