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).
