|The Heyrovský Discussions have
been organized during the last more than five decades every year by the
J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry,
Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and by some co-organizers (e.g., Institute of Biophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences). Each year a
different field of electrochemistry is selected as the
discussion theme. The total number of participants is limited to
about 50-60 by the capacity of the Castle.
|In the year 2019, this conference is organized on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of awarding Professor J. Heyrovský by Nobel Prize for the invention of polarography and
it dedicated to the Memory of Professor Emil Paleček.
||The main topic of this year's meeting is focused on electrochemical investigation of organic compounds, biopolymers, and studies of mechanisms of related electrode processes..
|The general philosophy of the
Discussions is to invite experienced scientists specialized in a
certain field together with students or young research workers,
and to let them to present in an informal way their most recent
achievements and interpretations with a special stress on
broad and friendly scientific discussion.
|For this reason the time
schedule is more free than that at conventional meetings
allowing more space to discussion: the program is divided into
several sessions devoted to individual topics. Every session is
opened by an introductory lecture (40 min). After that
oral presentations announced in the program (15-20 min
long) follow, which are accompanied by free discussion.
The chairing person plays an important role here, since in the
frame of a session he has to follow time and simultaneously to
provoke and coordinate discussion. Posters will be exhibited
during whole meeting in foyer.
|In order to allow presentation
of the most recent results, abstracts of announced oral
contributions and posters are required (in electronic form) only until April 20, 2019).
Printed proceedings of
announced papers (as well as their electronic form) will be
prepared before the Discussion (with its own ISBN).
