The Symposium

“Exploring the Frontiers of Chemistry: Challenges for the 21st Century” is a chemistry symposium organized by the Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales (FCEN), University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and the Ben-Gurion of the Negev University (Israel). It will be held in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, at FCEN, pabellón 2, located at Ciudad Universitaria, Intendente Güiraldes 2160, Buenos Aires City on September 9-10, 2019.

This international event will feature conferences and poster sessions involving all areas of chemistry (Biological, Inorganic, Physical, Organic and Industrial Chemistry) and researchers of both Universities.

The symposium will be organized in four sections:
Energy and Environment
Novel Materials
Reactivity and Catalysis
Chemistry from the Biological Perspective

We believe this activity will generate a stimulating environment for scientific networking between both Universities as well as among the different chemistry departments of FCEN. The conferences and poster sessions will be open and free of charge to the university community including students. Thus, the symposium will be also a space to bring students closer to research projects developed in our faculty and will be an excellent oporunity to be in contact with specialists in all areas of chemistry.

To participate of the event (free of charge) as participant, speaker or poster presenter, please complete the registration form placed in our Website. Only registered participant will have full access to the conference room, poster sessions and coffee breaks.
