Chemistry Conference for Young Scientists

19-21 February 2020, Blankenberge, Belgium

The 15th edition of ChemCYS, the Chemistry Conference for Young Scientists, will take place from 19-21 February 2020 on the Belgian coast in Blankenberge. ChemCYS is an international, biennial conference, which aims to create a platform for final-year master students, Ph.D. students and young post-docs to present early results of their research.

We accept oral and poster entries from all fields of chemistry and life sciences. Accepted submissions will be assigned to one of the following six topical sessions:

  1. Analytical and Environmental Chemistry

  2. Life Sciences

  3. Inorganic Chemistry

  4. Macromolecular and Materials Chemistry

  5. Organic and Organometallic Chemistry

  6. Physical and Theoretical Chemistry

The best oral and poster presentation of each session will be awarded.

Furthermore, we’re proud to announce confirmed lectures by Prof. Sarah E. O’Connor (Planck Institute of Chemical Ecology, Germany), Prof. Javier García Martínez (Founder and Chief Scientist of Rive Technology Inc, Boston MA, USA) and Prof. Krzysztof Matyjaszewski (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA).

ChemCYS also features parallel soft skill seminars and KaféCV, our entrance level networking event where participants get to know various companies and their recruitment policies. KaféCV enhances career development by exchange of experiences between senior chemists and the next generation of chemists, offering a peek into the life of a scientist in a professional environment.

ChemCYS is organised by the youth division of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (Jong-KVCV) and is officially endorsed by IUPAC and EuChemS.

Registrations are open now at


It is a condition of endorsements that organizers of meetings under the auspices of IUPAC, in considering the locations of such meetings, should take all possible steps to ensure the freedom of all bona fide chemists from throughout the world to attend irrespective of race, religion, or political philosophy. IUPAC endorsement implies that entry visas will be granted to all bona fide chemists provided application is made not less than three months in advance. If a visa is not granted one month before the meeting, the IUPAC Secretariat should be notified without delay by the applicant.

How to Apply for IUPAC Endorsement

Conference organizers are invited to complete an Application for IUPAC Endorsement (AIE) preferably 2 years and at least 12 months before the conference. Further information on granting endorsement is included in the AIE and is available upon request from the IUPAC Secretariat or online.
