50th Heyrovskı Discussion
  Prof. RNDr. Jirí Ludvík, CSc.
  (+420) 26605 3217
|   A I M   |

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 special feature of this year’s meeting is to bring together organic, organometallic and coordination electrochemists and to discuss the chemical redox mechanisms in electrosynthesis, electrocatalysis and in transformation of significant molecules.

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 electrochemical 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 (without fixed time slots) 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. 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 one month in advance (i.e. until May 15, 2017). 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).
