Second Pan-European Younger Chemists Conference
September2 October 2002, Heidelberg, Germany
of Younger European Chemists (up to age 35) will be held 30 September-2
October 2002 in Heidelberg, Germany. This is an event of the High-Level
Scientific Conference Programme of the European Commission. It is the
second in what will hopefully become an annual series. The first meeting
took place in London in July 2001.
will be interpreted broadly for the meeting not only chemical
science of all sorts but also some chemical engineering and technology.
A principal aim is to bring European younger chemists working in research
and R&D of all types together not only from EC countries but also
from other European countries, thus encouraging greater interaction,
networking, novel collaborations, and increased European harmony.
aspects of the conference are posters and talks by Europes younger
chemists. Keynote speakers include Harry Kroto, Jean-Marie Lehn, and
the top research director of BASF. The Europa Medal and £500 Prize
for Chemistry will be awarded at the conference. There will be an afternoon
visit to BASF in Ludwigshafen as well.

third in a series organized by the Los Alamos National Laboratory, will
provide an international forum for presentation and discussion of current
research on plutonium and other actinide elements. A number of issues
surrounding plutonium and the actinides deserve and receive significant
international attention, including the safe storage and long-term management
of weapons materials and the management of large inventories of actinides
from nuclear power generation. The conference will provide opportunities
to examine present knowledge of the chemical and physical properties
of plutonium and other actinides in complex media and materials and
to discuss the current and emerging science (chemistry, physics, materials
science, nuclear science, and environmental effects) of plutonium and
actinides relevant to enhancing global nuclear security.
program will consist of invited plenary and keynote lectures followed
by presentations of invited and contributed papers. The plenary sessions
will include participation by policy makers as well as scientific leaders.
Scientists, engineers, and students from throughout the world are encouraged
to participate and make technical contributions. Anticipated conference
technical sessions will cover: materials science; nuclear fuels; condensed
matter physics; actinides in the environment; separations, detection,
and analysis; processing; storage, disposal, and waste; and novel plutonium/
actinide compounds and complexes.
by young scientists is encouraged. The registration fee will be waived
for all students and postdoctoral fellows. In addition, financial assistance
for travel expenses is available for students and postdoctoral fellows
who present papers. See the conference web site. There will be a half-day
introductory tutorial session on actinide science for students and non-specialists
Sunday afternoon before the start of the conference.
