All attendees to EWPC-16 are invited to the Industrial Phosphorus Chemistry (IndPhos) Symposium
that immediately precedes EWPC-16 on 24 April 2019

The long tradition of workshops previously held in Kaiserslautern (2004), Bonn (2005), Leipzig (2006), Zandvoort (2007), Regensburg (2008), Florence (2009), Budapest (2010), Münster (2011), Rennes (2012), Regensburg (2013), Sofia (2014), Kassel (2015), Berlin (2016), Cluj-Napoca (2017) and Uppsala (2018) will be continued with the 16th European Workshop on Phosphorus Chemistry in Bristol, United Kingdom. This workshop series has a strong reputation for fruitful exchange of ideas, opinions and excellent discussions. The aspects of phosphorus chemistry covered by this workshop span organic, inorganic, polymer, materials chemistry and biological chemistry.

The workshop gives early stage researchers the opportunity to communicate their work to the leading European research groups in phosphorus chemistry. The program will include oral contributions from PhD students (15 + 5 min, 1 presentation per research group) and poster sessions (no limitations).  Students will also chair the sessions of oral contributions.  Prizes for best oral contributions, posters, and chairs will be awarded.

What will you do after your PhD? One of the options is to work in the chemical industry. With this in mind, the IndPhos symposium will showcase the P chemistry that is important in industry today and give students the opportunity to meet scientists from companies that have a keen interest in people trained in P chemistry.
