French Swiss Photochemistry Symposium

The Photochemistry, Photophysics and Photosciences Subdivision (SP2P) of the Chemical Society (SCF) of France and the Photochemistry Section of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS) invite you to the first edition of French Swiss Photochemistry Symposium on 21-22 January 2021.

In response to the global health situation in Europe, the conference will take place online via the Zoom platform. The program will be organized with 2 Keynote lectures, 3 Invited talks, 30 Oral communications and 32 Flash-presentations (instead of posters, in two parallel sessions).

Oral communications and flash-presentations will be selected by the organizing committee based on the abstracts submissions. Some private rooms will be available to allow discussions after the Flash-presentations and during the coffee breaks. Young scientists (PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and junior PI’s) are particularly encouraged to submit abstracts for oral contributions and flash-presentations. Four prizes will be awarded.
