International Symposium on Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (ISPAC), September 9-12, 2019

Welcome to the 26th ISPAC meeting in Örebro.

After a four year hiatus, the world’s premier conference on PACs is coming to charming central Sweden. With its surrounding pristine nature reserves, top-notch interdisciplinary research groups, and convenient rail links to Gothenburg and Stockholm, Örebro University proudly welcomes you to ISPAC 2019.

This year’s meeting will continue the long tradition of ISPAC meetings. The first meeting was organized in 1976 in Columbus, Ohio, USA. Starting in 1995, the meetings have alternated between North America and Europe. The 2019 edition will be the first time ISPAC meeting is held in Sweden.

ISPAC meeting is truly interdisciplinary, covering a wide range of topics, spanning from analytical chemistry to ecotoxicology to chemical synthesis to interstellar, among others. With such diverse topics, participants of ISPAC meeting will have the opportunity to exchange and share their research ideas, while also learning about the latest research in the world of PACs. The stimulating sessions will also include opportunities to network with industry representatives as they exhibit chemical products, analytical instruments, and services related to the study of PACs.

We look forward to seeing you in Örebro!

Med vänliga hälsningar,

Maria Larsson and Ivan A. Titaley
26th ISPAC local hosts
