The Heyrovskı Discussions have been organized during the last four decades every year by the J. Heyrovskı Institute of Physical Chemistry, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. 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.

The general philosophy of the Discussions is to bring together students and young research workers with experienced electrochemists specialized in a certain field, and to let them to present in an informal way their most recent achievements and interpretations with a special stress on a 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) as well as short ad hoc contributions (5-15 min long) follow, which are accompanied by free discussion. Each session has a chairman whose duty is among others to accept the relevant ad hoc contributions and determine their sequence, to follow time and to organize and provoke the discussion. Besides that, contributions in form of posters are also accepted.

In order to allow presentation of the most recent results, abstracts of announced oral contributions and posters are required (in electronic form) only one month in advance (i.e. until April 25, 2010). Note that the most fresh results presented as ad hoc contributions need no abstracts. Printed proceedings of announced papers (as well as their electronic form) will be prepared before the Discussion (with its own ISBN).

We hope that the 43rd Heyrovskı Discussion will contribute to the development of electrochemistry itself, to establishing new cooperative plans and projects as well as to a suited commemoration the 120th anniversary of the birth of professor Heyrovskı (1890-1967). Simultaneously, we would like to remember 50 years of laboratory of organic electrochemistry in the J. Heyrovskı Institute, with the presence of its founder and promoter, prof. Petr Zuman. We wish that you could enjoy this meeting.
