28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry

28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry

An invitation to all scientists using light and chemistry


On behalf of the local organizing committee I warmly welcome you to the 28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry, July 12 - 17, 2020, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

We continue a long tradition of conferences where experts in photochemistry research in a broad sense exchange the latest results, and where scientists and engineers who use light in their research or application can pick up new ideas and strengthen their knowledge of the specifics of the interaction of light and matter. 

A non-exclusive list of conference topics highlights the photochemistry of today and its impact on society in the future. 

If you wish to receive news about the program and be reminded of deadlines for registration and abstract submission, please pre-register at the registration page. 

We look forward to welcome you in Amsterdam in 2020.


Fred Brouwer, conference chair
