2–7 April 2006, Kyoto, Japan
The IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry is a biennial international conference with topics encompassing the entire spectrum of photochemistry. The series of symposia was initiated by George Hammond, with the first one held in Strasbourg in 1964. Since then, the symposia have been held every two years in Europe. The XXIst Symposium on Photochemistry will be held 2–7 April 2006 in Kyoto, Japan—the first time the symposium will be held outside Europe.
As with previous symposia in this series, a number of internationally known scientists will give lectures covering traditional as well as modern photochemistry and the latest developments in the field. Science and technologies related to photochemistry, such as materials for photonics, nanotechnology, and photobiology, will also be discussed in the symposium. The technical program will feature plenary lectures, invited lectures, workshops, oral communications, and posters. The workshops will deal with topics of electron transfer, organic light emitting diodes, and photocatalysts.
Attendees will have the chance to appreciate one of the most attractive spots in Japan. Kyoto is an ancient capital of Japan, and it retains a traditional Japanese atmosphere. April in Kyoto is the best season to visit because of blooming cherry blossoms and a relatively mild climate.
