The Plenary speeches will be held in the auditorium, all other activities are suspended during those sessions in order to enable all participants to attend. There will be several oral sessions in parallel during the afternoon on different topics. Those sessions will be held in smaller rooms and the participants can select the ones they want to attend depending on their topics of interest.

The detailed program is available!

Nanoscale Horizons is a premier journal publishing first reports of exceptional significance across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology research. It is an innovative, community-focused, dynamic journal guided by world-renowned editorial board members. Nanoscale Horizons is a collaborative venture between the Royal Society of Chemistry and a leading nanoscience research centre, the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) in Beijing, China. Nanoscale Horizons features cutting-edge community-spanning research that bridges the various disciplines involved with nanoscience and nanotechnology, including the areas of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, materials, energy/environment, information technology, detection science, healthcare and drug discovery, and electronics.


Molecular Systems Design & Engineering provides a hub for cutting-edge research into how understanding of molecular properties, behaviour and interactions can be used to design and assemble better materials, systems, and processes to achieve specific functions. These may have applications of technological significance and help address global challenges.

Crossing the boundary between chemistry and chemical engineering, this unique new journal is a joint venture between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).
