Dalton 2021- Joint Interest Group meeting and DYME

29 June - 1 July 2021, United Kingdom



A virtual conference for 2021 which brings together researchers from the breadth of inorganic chemistry. The meeting is organised by the Dalton Division and associated Interest Groups:
  • Coordination and Organometallic Chemistry Discussion Group (CODG)
  • Inorganic Biochemistry Discussion Group (IBDG)
  • Inorganic Reaction Mechanisms Discussion Group (IRMDG)
  • Main Group Chemistry Group (MGDG)


DYME, the Dalton Division’s event for early career researchers, will take place as a satellite meeting to the main conference. Taking place on 28 June 2021, DYME will include networking sessions, advice on scientific careers, and an opportunity to meet other early career inorganic chemists.

If you are a PhD student or postdoctoral researcher and would like to attend DYME, please tick the box at registration to gain access to the additional sessions.

Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Competition

The Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Competition will take place during Dalton 2021, generously supported by the Wilkinson Charitable Foundation. The competition aims to celebrate the breadth and strength of inorganic chemistry as demonstrated by researchers at the first steps of their careers.

The poster competition is divided into two parts: one for postgraduates, and one for postdoctoral researchers. The winners of the competition will receive a bursary and certificate.
Abstract Submission

Oral Abstracts

Oral presentation slots of 20 minutes will be available and will be selected by the individual discussion groups based on the abstracts submitted. Oral Submission is now closed. 

Poster Abstracts

Poster submissions are now closed. Posters are displayed throughout the meeting, with a dedicated poster session held on the evening of 29 June and over lunch on the 30 June.

As this event is being held online, we will be using a dedicated online poster platform. If your poster is accepted for this event, you will receive an email from us inviting you log on to the poster platform where you will be able to create an interactive poster. When creating a poster you will be able to choose from a variety of templates, and select colours, backgrounds and fonts, to create a poster specific to your work. The poster can contain text, images, videos and audio recordings, and can include as much detail as you require as content boxes within the templates are not limited to size. You will also have access to video tutorials, showing you how you can create your poster in the platform, and access to email support with the poster platform if you have any specific questions. 

All poster presenters will additionally be invited to submit a 60-second flash talk, which will be available to view throughout the meeting. 

Additional Information

Authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process within about 4 weeks of the submission deadline. The abstracts should be no longer than one A4 page in portrait layout. Please ensure you provide the details of the presenting author and indicate whether you are submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation. Please also indicate the discussion group theme which is most relevant to your abstract.
