Dear Fellow Chemists,

You are warmly invited to the 6 European Association of Chemical and Materials Societies (EuCheMS) in Seville, Spain, 11 September, 2016.

Already plans are developing to have a wonderful celebration of Chemistry, the science that most enhances the everyday lives of every one of us, in all its facets. Plenary, Keynote, Invited and Contributed lectures will bring you up to date in all topical areas of modern pure and applied Chemistry and will be given by some of Europe and the world’s most distinguished Chemists. There will be large poster sessions, workshops, especially for younger people and plenty of time for networking, developing contacts for collaborative research and grant applications, meeting with and making new friends as well for general discussion.

There will be special sessions run by the very active and effective European Young Chemists Network, so we especially encourage younger Chemists to join us.

The Seville meeting, to be run by National Association of Spanish Chemists (ANQUE), follows very successful meetings in Prague (2012) and Istanbul (2014). It is expected that around 2000 Chemists will be present for this exciting showcase of European Chemistry.

Seville is a wonderful city in Andalucía, in the South of Spain. It is famed for its beautiful architecture (Cathedral, containing the coffin of Christopher Columbus; Alcazar, the oldest Royal Palace in Europe and Giralda, minaret turned bell tower, up which it is possible to ride a horse).

Seville in September will be warm and sunny but not too hot, typically around 25oC (77 oF).

A warm and sunny welcome awaits you there as well as a stunning celebration of Chemistry. Let us use this opportunity to make the 6th European Chemical Congress the best yet!

I very much look forward to welcoming you there.
With all good wishes,

David Cole-Hamilton
President EuCheMS
