Finnish Young Scientist Forum on Catalysis 2018 on April 6 – Register by March 16

Finnish Catalysis Society organizes on April 6th the Finnish Young Scientist Forum on Catalysis (FYSFC), starting at 10:00, in Dipole. Conference information is updated in our group’s website in:

The plenary speaker will be Prof. Krijn De Jong, Utrecht University, The Netherlands, EFCATS Francois Gault lecturer: “Effects of size and location of metal nanoparticles in catalysis”. The lecture is simultaneously part of Aalto course CHEM-1140 (Catalysis for Bimass Refining). After the young scientist forum, there will be have the annual meeting of the Finnish Catalysis Society.

FYSFC will now be organized for the third time. The fundamental goal behind the event is to gather together scientists in the field of catalysis in Finland.  Applying the same practices as in the annual seminars of Finnish graduate schools, we offer all doctoral students <on catalysis> a forum to present their research. In 2018, you can request to present your work as:

  • Full-length oral presentation (~15 min), for doctoral students and optionally for postdocs
  • Poster + 1-2 min oral, optionally doctoral students who presented last year, for postdocs, and optionally other researchers
  • Poster only, other than doctoral students

Registration is now open; please register through the following link latest on March 16: Please prepare to fill in the title of your presentation and presentation highlights as bullet points (max 300 words). (Students of the CHEM-1140 course will be advised to register for the Prof. De Jong lecture through other means later.)
