3rd French-Czech Vltava Chemistry Meeting

 The VLTAVA Chemistry Meetings have been launched following a call from the embassy of France in the Czech Republic and are organized on a yearly basis since 2010. The first edition was held in Dijon, the second in Pardubice in 2011, and the third will take place again in Dijon on September 10-11, 2012.

The aim of these meetings is to gather scientists from both countries, who have similar scientific interests, to give them an opportunity of presenting and discussing recent results of their work, to share their experience with other researchers, and to find new collaborators in the other country. The audience will be composed of PhD and post-doctoral students, and researchers interested in all aspects of molecular chemistry.

The program will comprise plenary lectures by senior faculty members and oral communications given by students from both countries, and will leave free time for informal discussions as well as for poster presentations in a convivial atmosphere.
The 3rd French-Czech Vltava Chemistry Meeting will take place on the campus of the Université de Bourgogne at the "Sciences Mirande" building from Monday September 10 (registration starting at 8 am) to Tuesday September 11 in the late afternoon.
