The tradition was started in 1967 and maintained for 24 years by Professor A.A.Vlèek, then director of the J.Heyrovskı Institute. Later on the organization of these meetings circulates among senior scientists (electrochemists) of the J. Heyrovskı Institute under patronage of the director of the Institute.

The Heyrovskı Discussion took place always in one of the conference centers of the Czech Academy. Originally, the Discussions were held at the Liblice castle, later in castle Bechynì and recently it has taken place at the renaissance castle Tøeš in southeastern Bohemia, in an attractive, peaceful locality rich in historical monuments and of beautiful natural scenery.

The following topics were discussed so far :

1967    Adsorption at Electrodes and its Influence upon Electrode Processes

1968    Adsorption and Processes on Catalytic Electrodes

1969    Mechanism of Redox Reaction Proper
