Merck Young Chemists' Symposium 2022


We are glad to announce the 21st edition of the annual event of Società Chimica Italiana (SCI) entirely dedicated to young researchers working in Chemistry, the Merck Young Chemists’ Symposium 2022. This international conference is organized by the Young Group of Società Chimica Italiana (SCI Giovani) and the National Interuniversity Consortium of Materials Science and Technology (INSTM) with the financial support from Merck and several other sponsors.

The Merck Young Chemists’ Symposium 2022 will take place from the 21st to the 23rd of November in Rimini (Italy), on the Adriatic Riviera of Romagna, in one of the best-known seaside resorts in Northern Italy.

The symposium will be held in the Hotel Sporting & Hotel Ambasciatori, ensuring an elegant, comfortable, and top-level 4*-superior hospitality.

This symposium will cover all the disciplines of Chemistry and is fully oriented to young researchers, such as MSc and PhD students, scholarship holders and post-doc fellows, as well as young researchers working in companies and other non-academic research institutes. Thanks to the active commitment of SCI in the European framework (as a society member of EuChemS), the event will have international character: it will be open to researchers coming from all over the world, will guest international plenary speakers, and English will be the official language.

Symposium members will present the results of their scientific research in front of an international audience, which will also include representatives of chemical companies and invited renowned scientists.

The conference is organized to allow each participant to contribute with an oral presentation, a poster, or a poster + flash presentation. All the accepted scientific contributions within the event will be collected in a citable international volume with ISBN code.

The deadline for abstract submission is October 20th, 2022.
