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.The best oral and poster presentation of each session will be awarded. Furthermore, we’re proud to announce confirmed lectures by Prof. Dr Sarah E. O'Connor (Planck Institute of Chemical Ecology, Germany), Prof. Dr Javier García Martínez (Founder and Chief Scientist of Rive Technology Inc, Boston MA, USA) and Prof. Dr 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.
