SCS Fall Meeting 2021 - Online Event

Welcome to the 2021 Fall Meeting of the Swiss Chemical Society, a Virtual Conference!

The SCS Fall Meeting 2020, one of the largest annual research conferences was held in Switzerland. For generations of young chemists educated in Switzerland, the Fall Meeting has been a great platform to present their research –often for the first time ever at a major conference- and to be inspired by the people one gets to meet.

The Scientific Program offeres Award Lectures presented by leaders in their respective fields, as well as invited and contributed lectures in nine thematic sessions covering all of chemistry. For each of these, there will also be a virtual poster session.
