Young Researchers CIS 2021

On-line Conference. 6-8 September 2021

The Spanish Zeolite Group together with Czech Zeolite Association and Italian Zeolite Association extend a cordial invitation to all young (and not so young) colleagues and students in the field of catalysis, zeolites and ordered porous materials to attend the Young Researchers CIS 2021, an extra edition of the Czech-Italian-Spanish Conference Series on Molecular Sieves and Catalysis, which will be held from 6th to 8th of September 2021.

As the situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic is still creating considerable uncertainty about the coming months, the event will be held on-line.

The Conference aims to establish and strengthen relationships between young scientists, PhD and MSc students from Czech Republic, Italy and Spain, thus promoting future collaborations in the wide field of the science and technology of zeolites and related materials.

Priority will be given to young students to present their most recent results to our international community in a friendly and close environment, the CIS environment. Two types of oral presentations are offered: 17 minutes (Oral talk) and 7 min (Short talk) with options to raise questions in both of them.

Submitted papers will be offered the opportunity to contribute with a full paper to a Special Issue of Catalysis Today (I.F. 2019: 5.825) following the standard peer reviewed process. People interested in the publication will have to state it in the registration form in order to receive an invitation letter. Publication schedule:
