Welcome message

The European Meeting on Environmental Chemistry (EMEC) is organized annually on behalf of the Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE). It traditionally comprises a wide range of topics in the field of environmental chemistry and interdisciplinary presentations are very welcome. The EMEC meeting always attracts high quality scientific presentations, plenary and keynote talks from internationally renowned researchers working in environmental chemistry and related fields.

The Department of Analytical Chemistry, Nutrition and Food Science and the University Institute of Materials of the University of Alicante are pleased to host the 24th European Meeting on Environmental Chemistry, which will be held in Alicante (Spain) from 26th to 29th November 2024.

Alicante, known by the Romans as Lucentum, “City of Light”, offers a unique combination of liveliness and generosity. It is a carefully planned city, both hospitable and full of surprises as you stroll through its streets, with parks and emblematic buildings everywhere. Alicante has a gentle climate, with mild temperatures and many hours or sunlight, which we hope you will enjoy during the days you spend with us.

Our main objective is to attain the level of excellence seen at the previous EMEC meetings. We are therefore preparing for this important scientific event with great effort and dedication to ensure a first-class scientific programme presenting the latest research and trends in Environmental Chemistry. The official programme will include plenary sessions, keynote lectures, oral presentations, poster sessions, workshops and an industrial exhibition that will bring us up to date with the latest advances and trends in the field; as well as poster and oral presentations by young researchers who represent the future of this scientific discipline.

The social events that round off the programme are designed to encourage informal discussion between participants, as well as allowing them to enjoy the delicious food and cultural and leisure activities that our city has to offer.

We are confident that the EMEC meeting will provide a broad forum for people from academia, research and industry to exchange ideas on the latest advances in research and development in environmental chemistry and technology.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend and participate, and we trust that this event will be of the highest scientific and human value, full of content, vibrancy and participation, fulfilling your every expectation. We look forward to seeing you all in Alicante.
