ESPCI ParisTech

- Paris, France - February 1st, 2011

A two-day conference will be held at ESPCI ParisTech and at the Institut Curie (Paris, France) to celebrate both the centennial of the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Marie Sklodowska Curie and the International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011).

The conference is free of charge and open to everyone, however the number of attendees is limited. Please confirm your registration (click here or pictures above) as soon as possible, as first come first served. If you intend to present a poster, confirm it quickly, as the same limitations apply.
