Annual Meeting

The 42nd Fluorine Conference of Japan

The Society of Fluorine Chemistry, Japan, holds the Fluorine Conference of Japan every autumn to facilitate the exchange of information and interactions among members and as a unique and interdisciplinary conference beyond the boundaries of organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, polymer chemistry, and analytical chemistry.
This year (2019), the 42nd Fluorine Conference of Japan will be held at the Kobe University Centennial Hall - Rokko Hall on November 21-22 co-organizing with Kobe University. In addition to 3 invited lectures from overseas and inside of Japan, oral and poster presentations are scheduled for the discussion. From this year, an excellent oral presentation award will also be awarded, sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). We look forward to your participation.
