Call for Papers

The Association of Greek Chemists and the Division of Chemistry and the Environment (DCE) of European Chemical Society (EuChemS) cordially invite you to the 17th International Conference on Chemistry and the Environment in Thessaloniki, Greece in June 2019. Dates: 16.06. – 20.06.2019.

ICCE 2019 addresses scientists in the academia, industry and in governmental institutions alike and intends to provide a unique information and communication platform for environmental scientists and a forum of professional exchange with collaborators and colleagues of related disciplines.

The 17th ICCE will continue along its scientific tradition providing a representative spectrum of updated scientific information for modern applications of Chemistry in the relevant field of Environmental Research and technology development.

Dedicated satellite events will be organized as pre and post-conference events highlighting special emerging scientific aspects of very recent developments and requirements.
