This Frühjahrssymposium, we want to celebrate diversity! Because divers is what we are, having different interests and research focuses, origin and gender, passion and appreciation. Some of us might look similar to the adorable, chaotic scientist that a child would imagine to be the chemist prototype. And many do not. However, regardless of our differences – we are all United in Chemistry! As a part of the great scientific community, we act in concert for new knowledge, efficient processes or the inspiration of young talents. In short: for a better world – the world of tomorrow. The pentagonal ring in our logo is a symbol for the JCF regional groups, its members and chemists from all over the world – for all of us – working together.
In this way, the JCFs of Berlin, Dresden, Halle, and Leipzig are delighted to invite you to the 23rd Frühjahrssymposium in Leipzig! The upcoming meeting, which is one of the largest conferences for young scientists in Europe, will take place from 29th March – 1st April 2021 in Leipzig. Highlights will be the plenary lectures. Furthermore, young scientists from all across Europe will present their research in short talks and a large poster scession. A delicate conference dinner and various social activities complete the program and will give you the opportunity to learn more about the city of Leipzig. Once again, you will be able to connect with other young chemists as well as with leading scientists and various companies. Let‘s get United in Chemistry!

The Frühjahrssymposium 2021 will take place in the second-biggest city of eastern Germany, Leipzig. The city is over 1000 years old and worldwide known for its trade fair, the oldest surviving trade fair in the world, and the Battle of Nations, the big defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1813, and the peaceful protests against the East German dictatorship in 1989. But there is more than the historical meaning which makes Leipzig a very special city. The appearance is mainly shaped by buildings from the late 19th century (“Gründerzeit”) and recreational areas like rivers, lakes and riverside forest. Leipzig’s public life is defined by a high number of students and young people and results in a living bar and club scene.
The Leipzig University is one of the oldest universities in the world. From its foundation in 1409, a church right in the center of the city (“Paulinerkirche”) was the main building of the university until it was demolished and replaced by the socialists in 1968. Nowadays the university has a brand-new main building, the “Augusteum”, which is on of Leipzig’s architectural highlights, and even a small church in tribute to the old “Paulinerkirche”. The central location in the city, it’s size and architecture and the range of different lecture theatres make this campus an excellent venue for the Frühjahrssymposium 2021.
