Conference Announcements

ChemCYS 2018

Chemistry Conference for Young Scientists

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 – Fri, 23 Feb 2018

ChemCYS' 14th edition will take place from 21 to 23 February 2018 in Blankenberge (Belgium).

Our conference gives young attendees the opportunity to present early results of their research. Topics are focussed on the typical research domains in chemistry. The best oral and poster presentation of each session will be awarded.

Plenary keynote lectures by world-renowned scientists are scheduled as well. 2016 Nobel prize laureate Prof. Dr Ben Feringa (University of Groningen) will give a lecture on molecular machines. Prof. Dr Sir Martyn Poliakoff (University of Nottingham) will engage you his talk focussing on green chemistry with respect to the environment and 2009 Nobel prize laureate Ada Yonath (Weizmann Institute of Science) will give a lecture on the discovery of the structure of ribosomes.

In parallel, six seminars focussing on soft skills will prepare the participants on life after graduation. We will focus on "Tech Transfer: from PhD research to spin-off", "Intellectual Propperty for scientists", "Data Management",  "How to improve your C.V.", "Managing your online profile and get your professional head shot" and "Digital Lab Notes".

Last but not least, ChemCYS features KaféCV, our entrance level networking event where participants get to know various companies and their recruitment policies. Unlike traditional job events, KaféCV focusses on career development rather than existing vacancies.

Abstract Submission

Thank you for registering for ChemCYS 2018

ChemCYS is known for its high level of active participation. Once you have finished the registration process, the next logical step is the submission of an abstract for either an oral or poster presentation. In the following sections you will find the necessary information to successfully submit an abstract and have it peer-reviewed.


Step 1: Logging in on the ChemCYS website

During the registration process you were asked to choose a username and password. Click the “log in” icon in the top right corner of the ChemCYS website and enter your username and password in the appropriate fields.

If you have forgotten your username and/or password, use the provided username/password recovery tools. In case of trouble please use the support ticket system to contact the organising committee. This will enable an adequate solution and prevents other participants from experiencing the same issues.


Step 2: Finding the abstract submission tool

Once logged in, a new tab will appear in the ChemCYS main menu: “My profile”. In this tab you can review your personal information and start the abstract submission process.


Step 3: Formatting the abstract

Enter the title, authors and author affiliations in the provided fields. This will allow a uniform formatting of all submitted abstracts.

The body of the abstract can be submitted in any form taking into account the guidelines listed below.
