5th EuChemS Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry (5th EuGSC)

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the organizing committee of the 5th EuChemS Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry (5th EuGSC), that will be held virtually on 26th – 29th September 2021, we would like to remind you that the deadline for abstract submission is April 30th, 2021 extended to May 31st. Based on the current status of COVID-19 in Europe as well as the anticipated situation in September, the 5th EuGSC will be held virtually, considering the safety and health of the participants and giving the opportunity to all colleagues to attend the conference, irrespective of travel or other related restrictions.The 5th EuGSC is organized by the Association of Greek Chemists (AGC) and EuChemS/Division of Green and Sustainable Chemistry and offers the opportunity to discuss the latest developments in green & sustainable chemistry, to expand existing and establish new relations among academia and industry, and to disseminate the philosophy and principles of sustainable development and circular (bio)economy.Latest updates:

Full papers of accepted abstracts will have the opportunity to be published, after standard peer review process of the journals. More information will be available here.

International Conference on Green Chemistry

The 9th IUPAC International Conference on Green Chemistry, organized by the Association of Greek Chemists (AGC) in collaboration with the IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development (ICGCSD) and the Hellenic Green Chemistry Network will take place in Athens, Greece between 18th – 22nd October 2020 has been postponed to Sept/Oct 2022

The IUPAC International Conferences on Green Chemistry (ICGCs) gather several hundreds of scientists, technologists, and experts from all over the world with the aim of exchanging and disseminating new ideas and discoveries, and promoting collaborations within the frame of green chemistry, sustainable development and the circular economy.

ICGC-9 is the 9th of the series of IUPAC conferences on green chemistry, the first having been organized in Germany (2006), followed by Russia (2008), Canada (2010), Brazil (2012), South Africa (2014), Italy (2016), Russia (2017) and Thailand (2018).

More information and instructions regarding the call for abstracts, venue, deadlines, etc. are available at the conference webpage:
