The “Frühjahrssymposium” (German for spring symposium) is one of Europe's biggest scientific conferences organized by young scientists for young scientists. It is held annually in spring and hosted by a different JCF regional board or a group of JCF regional boards every year. Along with plenary lectures given by worldwide renowned researchers, talks from young scientists from all over Europe play a central role in this three-day conference. Another highlight are the poster sessions with several hundred posters from chemistry and related scientific fields. The spring symposium is accompanied by an entertaining program providing plenty of opportunities to catch up with old friends and to make new ones. This conference presents a unique possibility for undergraduates and graduate students from Germany, Europe and overseas to present their work to a specialist audience.
The Frühjahrssymposium 2021 took place from 29 March to 1 April. However, for the first time in its history the conference was hosted online. The event was brought to you by the JCF regional boards of Berlin, Dresden, Halle and Leipzig and shall take place under the motto “United in Chemistry”. This motto was chosen not only in the context of the locations of the hosting JCF regional boards and as a reference to all-German history but, moreover, to emphasize our appreciation of diversity both within the field of chemistry as well as of the people passionately working in this fascinating discipline. ChemistryViews published an article dealing with the success of the first JCF online event.
For this year´s conference you can look forward to an exciting scientific program, containing experimental and theoretical work covering a broad range of topics e.g. from biological to material-related fields of chemistry. In addition to the scientific program you will have various opportunities to interact – in digital format ─ with other participants as well as with industry e.g. at the digital sponsoring stands, at a poker table or during the conference dinner.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you soon at the Frühjahrssymposium 2021!
