4–8 June 2018 10th European meeting on Solar Chemistry and Photocatalysis: Environmental Applications (SPEA10)

Almería, Spain

Launched in 2000 and 2002 in Saint-Avold, France, the European meeting series SPEA progressively gained over the last years its renown among the most relevant meetings in solar chemistry and photocatalysis by travelling around Europe. Hosted in Barcelona (2004), Gran Canaria (2006), Palermo (2008), Prague (2010), Oporto (2012), Thessaloniki (2014), Strasbourg (2016) SPEA will take place in Almería in 2018.

The objective of the four-days SPEA10 Meeting is to report on the most advanced research progresses in environmental photocatalysis and photochemistry, and to pave the way for future research and challenges.

6–8 June 2018 XIth International School on Organometallic Chemistry “Marcial Moreno Mañas”

Oviedo, Spain

The International School on Organometallic Chemistry “Marcial Moreno Mañas” is an annual activity organized by the ORFEO-CINQA Network ( It aims to get together young students, early career researchers and well recognized, world-leading scientists in a good atmosphere to facilitate and generate exchange of scientific information and knowledge. The XIth edition of the school will feature 8 plenary lectures delivered by prominent researchers from European, American and Asian universities:

- Didier Bourissou (Université Paul Sabatier, France)

- Clémence Corminboeuf (EPFL, Switzerland)

- Christopher C. Cummins (MIT, USA)

- Matthias Driess (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany)

- Rubén Martín (ICIQ, Spain)

- Jonathan Nitschke (University of Cambridge, UK)

- Laurel L. Schafer (University of British Columbia, Canada)

- Vivian Wing-Wah Yam (University of Hong Kong, China)

The school will be completed with 19 oral contributions (postdoctoral researchers) and 37 flash presentations (PhD students) that will be selected from the attendants. Around 80 posters presentations are also expected. The International School on Organometallic Chemistry “Marcial Moreno Mañas” is an EuChemMS recognized event, and the topics covered include the synthesis, reactivity, properties and applications of organometallic compounds, homogeneous catalysis and metal-mediated synthetic organic chemistry.

24–29 June 2018 2018 Catalysis GRC

New London, NH, USA

Since 1947 the Gordon Research Conference on Catalysis has been a forum for discussing the latest advances and the future of the field. We continue this tradition with a focus on advances in the four pillars in catalysis research: catalyst synthesis and characterization, kinetics, and theoretical methods, as applied to catalytic solutions to global grand challenges. The meeting will provide unique opportunities for interactions with many of the leaders in our field. This year we will start a new tradition with the addition of the Gordon Research Seminar that will "bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors" two days prior to the main conference.

8–12 July 2018 12th International Symposium on the "Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts" (PREPA12)

Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium

The 12th International Symposium on the "Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts" will be held in Louvain-la-Neuve, from 8 till 12 July 2018.

It is a tradition that every four years, the University of Louvain and the KU Leuven jointly organise a symposium devoted to the scientific bases for the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts. This meeting brings together researchers from academia and industry and offers a forum for discussions on the chemistry involved in the preparation of industrial heterogeneous catalysts.

We cordially invite all scientists active in the field of heterogeneous catalysis to participate in the 12th International Symposium on Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts.

The scientific program will consist of invited lectures, oral and poster presentations.

Contributions are solicited that focus on the aspects of catalyst preparation. Reports on physico-chemical characteristics of catalysts and catalytic performances should be limited to correlations with the preparation parameters.
