EuChemS Conferences on Organometallic Chemistry (EuCOMC)

The Division of Organometallic is one of the oldest Professional Networks of EuChemS, since when EuChemS still had it original name of FECS. It has held regular biannual conferences since 1976, originally called “FECHEM Conference on Organometallic Chemistry”, then switched to EuCOMC when FECS has become EuCheMS (European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences) in 2004 and then EuChemS (European Chemical Society) in 2018. The log of all FECHEM/EuCOMC conferences is given below:

Next EuCOMC

The next edition, the XXIV EuCOMC, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will take place as a virtual conference between 1 and 3 September 2021.

In addition to the biannual Divisional conferences, the EuChemS Division of Organometallic chemistry gives its auspices to other series of conferences held in Europe and with organometallic chemistry as its main theme:

  • The International School or Organometallic Chemistry (ISOC), held in Camerino, Italy.

The last meeting of this series was the 12th ISOC, held in 2019.

  • The Nordic Meeting on Organometallic Chemistry

The last meeting of this series, the 5th edition, was scheduled to take place in 2020 at Roskilde Universitet, Denmark, but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
