7th International Symposium on Photochromism 2013 & 8th Phenics International Network Symposium

The 7th International Symposium on Photochromism (ISOP 2013) will be held in the heart of historical Berlin, Germany, from September 23-26, 2013. One day for the 8th Phenics International Network Symposium will take place in Berlin (Germany) on 26 September 2013.

The ISOP series is a string of triannual events that are hosted on different continents and showcase the breadth of research on (organic) photochromism. After the very successful last two symposia 2007 in Vancouver and 2010 in Yokohama, this upcoming event in Berlin will carry on the tradition and highlight the most recent results and trends in the burgeoning area of photochromism research. The symposium will gather the world’s leading experts in the field and cover all aspects from the design of photochromic molecular systems all the way to their utilization in photoactive materials and photoswitchable biological tools. The symposium will be completed by a one-day meeting of the PHENICS network, to further strengthen the international collaboration on this topic and provide an additional opportunity especially to young researchers to present their research.
