Research in inorganic chemistry is the key to manifold applications in industrial fields and covers as diverse fields as materials development, energy generation, energy storage or consumer products. Applications in modern electronics, solar cells, polymers, batteries or paints and finishes are just a few examples of the importance of inorganic materials for everyday life. At the 29th ATC 2020: Industrial Inorganic Chemistry - Materials and Processes, experts from industry and academia present and discuss the latest science, providing the chance to get a holistic view of the field and explore cross-sectoral topics - a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange and the development of new ideas!
We are concerned about the health of our conference participants and staff. According to the public authorities, at present there is no danger involved in attending events in Germany. Current information can be found on the web site of the Federal Ministry of Health via the following link: https://www.bundesgesundheitsministerium.de/coronavirus.html (in German).
DECHEMA is in contact with the health authorities and will implement their recommendations and orders immediately. In consultation with the respective event location, cleaning measures for highly frequented areas (door handles, handrails etc.) will be intensified. In addition, dispensers with disinfectants will be provided in lavatories and at the entrance of the DECHEMA-building.
Furthermore, our staff will provide disinfectant wipes, which you can ask for at the conference reception desk. They will also have information about doctors and medical contact points in case of suspected cases.
DECHEMA is closely following the developments. Should the situation change and further recommendations be made by the authorities, we will react promptly.

The posters should be put up latest on Thursday, 20 February 2020 at 10.00 a.m. and taken down at the end of the conference on Friday, 21 February 2020 .
The possibilities to present the posters are during lunch and coffee breaks and during the Poster-Party on Thursday, 20 February 2020, 6.10 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. Authors are expected to be present during the Poster-Party.
The BestPoster will be awarded on Friday, 21 February 2020 before the coffee break at 10:40 am. Authors are expected to be present.
Focus topics from research to application
29th ATC 2020 sets a spotlight on
High-profile plenary speakers
True to the aim of stimulating the exchange between industry and academia, lecturers from companies will alternate with lecturers from universities and research institutions. The following speakers have already confirmed their participation:
Also invited lecturers from BASF, Heraeus, Osram and Evonik and speakers from universities will discuss issues under the given topics.
