International Congress of Young Chemists "YoungChem" is a successful event, organized annually by students of Warsaw University of Technology. Members of Scientific Society "Flogiston" do their best to let YoungChem get into the first league of "general" chemical conferences in Europe.


Scientific Chemical Society 'Flogiston' invites you to the International Congress of Young Chemists ‘YoungChem2011’. It is the 9th edition of a successful event, organized annually by students of Warsaw University of Technology. Members of Scientific Society ‘Flogiston’ do their best to let YoungChem get into the first league of ‘general’ chemical conferences in Europe.

     From its very beginning the Congress of Young Chemists - YoungChem has been an event organised by students and for students (including M.Sc.-s, Ph.D. students, Ph.D.-s and so on). Its main goal is to give an opportunity for young, skilled and ambitious scientists to present to international audience their areas of research, attend lectures by famous and respectable professors, meet industry representatives and, of course, integrate. Organisers try to create comfortable atmosphere during the conference, keeping at the same time its high scientific level, all of which makes each YoungChem an event to remember.

     ‘Flogiston’ does its best so that the conference's every subsequent edition is better than the previous one. Since 2003 YoungChem has evolved from a modest congress for students from Poland and its neighbouring countries through a European congress into an international one, which attracted over 110 participants from 25 countries from all over the world.

     Apart from its scope, each YoungChem resulted in new friendships, international student exchanges and good memories of the time spent together. The Organising Committee hopes that the upcoming ninth edition shall keep this tradition and be at least as successful as the previous ones.
