Chemcys 2018

ChemCYS, the Chemistry Conference for Young Scientists, is an international, biennial conference, held in Blankenberge, Belgium and it aims to create a platform for young scientists (Master students, PhD students and post docs) to present early results of their research. We target a broad audience as the topics cover all major fields of chemistry and life sciences. ChemCYS is organised by the youth division of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (Jong-KVCV), a professional organisation representing all chemists in Flanders.

Since 2010, this conference has received an increasing international interest and a growing number of participants. Due to this international appreciation, ChemCYS is since 2014 officially endorsed by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS).

The headliners of the conference are the plenary speakers. We are proud to announce the following leading scientists as plenary speakers at ChemCYS 2018:

• Nobel Laureate Prof. Dr Ben Feringa, University of Groningen
• Prof. Dr Sir Martyn Poliakoff, University of Nottingham
• Nobel Laureate Prof. Dr Ada Yonath, Weizmann Institute of Science


Next to presentations and poster sessions by our attendees, we organise KaféCV, a platform where attendees can interact with professionals from all major and minor chemical companies in and around Belgium. Furthermore, workshops, such as CV clinic, leadership, reviewing skills and more are organised.
