It is a great honor and pleasure for me to invite you cordially to the 26th EUCHEM Conference on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids that will be held from 3-8th July 2016 in Vienna, Austria. This series of meetings has been initiated in 1966 as EUCHEM Conference on Molten Salts in Norway, and after molten salt and ionic liquid communities joined forces in 2006, it developed to a true European event organized every two years. The 26th EUCHEM Conference on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids will promote intense interaction between both, molten salt and ionic liquid research and will cover fundamental aspects as well as all kind of application driven and applied research in ionic media over a large temperature range.
After a successful meeting in Tallinn in 2014, the EUCHEM on Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids will travel to the UNESCO world-heritage listed historic center of Vienna. Ideally located in the heart of Europe, Vienna has a long-standing tradition as conference city and is well-connected and easy to reach. The conference will take place in Hotel Savoyen to promote interaction and discussion between attendees in the spirit of previous meetings. Participants will experience the unique atmosphere of culture and historical places in Austria's capital city including famous Viennese cafés, not to forget the locale Viennese cuisine and Austrian wines, and enjoy a true celebration of Molten Salts and Ionic Liquids! Let’s turn the ions in three quarter time.
I look forward to seeing you in Vienna!
