ISF-2021 Young Conference

26 - 27 July 2021, United Kingdom


Introduction

Welcome

You are warmly invited to join us in July 2021 for this online edition of the International solar fuels conference. The first meeting of this internationally renowned conference was held in Uppsala, Sweden in 2015, and since then the meetings have been a highlight for the global solar fuels community.
 
Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry in partnership with the University of Grenoble and Uppsala University, the 2021 conference will host some of the leading solar fuels researchers from around the world. It promises to be a great forum to bring together research leaders and young scientists to discuss the main issues surrounding climate change and energy supply. 

We’re delighted to be also hosting the Young conference immediately preceding the main conference. The Young conference aims to give as many young researchers as possible the opportunity to present, and will also include keynote talks from mentoring experts and careers advice from the RSC.
 
On behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to meeting you online in July 2021.
 
Conference Co-chairs
Vincent Artero, CEA
Leif Hammarström, Uppsala Universitet
Ann Magnuson, Uppsala Universitet
Eric Maréchal, CNRS

Themes 

The programme will explore all aspects of direct solar fuel production, combining biological, molecular and solid state approaches. The main themes include:
  • Multi-electron/multi-proton catalysis (homogeneous, heterogeneous, enzymatic and bioinspired processes)
  • Light-harvesting and light-driven processes
  • Photoelectrochemistry
  • Photobiological approaches
  • Metabolic engineering
  • Devices and demonstration: robustness, sustainability and upscale

Attendance

The Royal Society of Chemistry is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you would like to discuss accessibility, please contact us to discuss your requirements so that we can enable your attendance.
Speakers
Abstract Submission

Oral Abstracts

Oral submissions are now closed. 

Abstract submitters will be notified of the outcome of the review process within about 4 weeks of the submission deadline. Please ensure you provide the details of the presenting speaker.

Presenters of the best oral presentations at the Young conference will also be asked to present at the main conference. This will be judged on the day by the Young committee.

Poster Abstracts 

Submit your poster abstract to the main conference or the Young conference by 7 June 2021 under one of the six themes:
  • Multi-electron/multi-proton catalysis
  • Light-harvesting and light-driven processes
  • Photoelectrochemistry
  • Photobiological approaches
  • Metabolic engineering
  • Devices and demonstration: robustness, sustainability and upscale 
 
Posters accepted for the Young conference will also be displayed at the main conference.

Posters are displayed throughout the meeting and some will be selected for Flash poster presentations. Poster Prizes will also be awarded to the best posters presented.

Energy journals and Open Science at the RSC 

28 July at 16:00 (BST)
This presentation will give an introduction to the Royal Society of Chemistry and its energy journals, and will give an overview of open science at the Royal Society of Chemistry. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the session.

Speakers: 
May Copsey, Executive Editor, Chemical Science, Royal Society of Chemistry
May Copsey is currently the Executive Editor for Royal Society of Chemistry’s flagship journal, Chemical Science. She joined the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2006 as an Assistant Editor and has worked on a variety of different journals during this time, including Dalton Transactions, CrystEngComm and Journal of Materials Chemistry. She was Executive Editor for the Analytical portfolio of journals for four years, before moving to take over the General Chemistry portfolio, including Chemical Science, ChemComm and Chemical Society Reviews in 2015. She has had the pleasure of leading an editorial team dedicated to Chemical Science since June of 2018. May is a main group chemist by training, as before joining the RSC she worked for three years as Post-doctoral Research Associate at the University of Calgary, after completing a PhD in main group chemistry at the University of Bristol.
Grace Thoburn, Developments Editor, Journals, Royal Society of Chemistry
Grace Thoburn is a Development Editor, and has worked across Energy & Environmental Science, Sustainable Energy & Fuels and the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Environmental Science journals since June 2020. She joined the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2018 as a Publishing Editor, working on the Journal of Materials Chemistry portfolio. Before joining the RSC, Grace studied Biochemistry at Imperial College London.

Meet the Editor 

28 July at 14:30 (BST),  29 July at 15:30 and 17:00 (BST) 
Interact and engage with Royal Society of Chemistry journal editors in this virtual room. Whatever the stage of your research career, be a part of discussions and gain meaningful insights on publishing, peer review, ethics and more.

Editors: May Copsey (Royal Society of Chemistry), Grace Thoburn (Royal Society of Chemistry), Vincent Artero (CEA), Garry Rumbles (National Renewable Energy Laboratory and University of Colorado Boulder)
