We are pleased to inform you that the 19th International Symposium on Silicon Chemistry (ISOS-2021), jointly organized with the 10th European Silicon Days (ESD-10), will be held this summer (2 and 5-7 July 2021) in Toulouse, France.
However, given the current severe pandemic situation, in order to preserve health security, we have decided to organize it as a hybrid symposium (on-site and online) with a limited number of on-site participants (about 100 participants on invitation: invited speakers, members of the international advisory boards and the local organizing committee). This symposium is composed of the following two sessions.
Friday July 2
Online-ISOS with online lectures and virtual poster sessions.
From Monday July 5 to Wednesday July 7
Hybrid-ISOS with 53 invited lectures (presented on site) which will be broadcasted online.
All participants can present their work as a poster in the virtual poster rooms for the duration of the symposium. The virtual poster sessions will take place on Friday July 2, using the Remo platform, which allows a direct exchange between participants. You will enjoy high-quality lectures given by the invited speakers, specialists from different fields of silicon chemistry, which will be live-stream broadcast online and followed by a session of questions and answers. In addition, the presentations will be recorded and uploaded on the ISOS-website for a certain period of time.
The online abstract submission system will be open on February 1st, 2021.
Further important information about ISOS-2021 (Important dates for abstract submission and registration, registration fees and detailed scientific programs) will be available on our website very soon: http://isos2020.enscm.fr/
We would like to cordially invite you to attend the next on-line ISOS-symposium next summer (July 2021).
Important: We have chosen the organization of a hybrid symposium rather than 2nd postponement, because we believe that the regular organization of the ISOS is essential for our scientific community, especially for students/postdocs who need to meet with other researchers at conferences and seminars to prepare their future careers. In the case of deterioration of pandemic situation, we will move to a fully online version of ISOS-2021 with no on-site participants. The final decision will be made in April 2021.
