The Grupo de Fotoquímica of the Sociedade Portuguesa de Química (SPQ) and the Grupo Especializado de Fotoquimica (GRUFO) of the Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ) cordially invite you to attend their join meeting, the VIth Jornadas Ibéricas de Fotoquímica (6'JIF). The meeting will be held in the "Campus de Santiago", University of Aveiro, Aveiro, from September 12th to 14th, 2018.
6'JIF is organized in the spirit of previous meetings (Santigo de Compostela in 2003; Faro in 2007; Granada in 2011, Lisbon in 2014, and Toledo in 2016), to bring together the Portuguese and Spanish Photochemistry communities into a high quality scientific program that spans over the many aspects of photochemistry and its interface with photophysics and photobiology, covering new and established techniques and methodologies, fundamental aspects, materials and applications.

The event will include Plenary and Invited lectures, together with oral communications (which will be selected from the submitted abstracts by the Scientific Committee). All participants are invited to participate with posters that will be discussed in poster sessions spanning the full duration of conference. 6'JIF is expected to attract a large number of participants, owing not only to the cutting-edge scientific content, but also to its beautiful location. Aveiro is a charming and historical coastal city in the centre of Portugal, quite unlike any other, next to the sea and the ria (estuary), and crossed by a network of channels through which moliceiros (local boats) meander. This a place where urban sophistication and modernity meet and merge. With its University, constructed in 1973 and considered one of the youngest and most innovative and dynamic of the universities in Portugal, it is indeed a perfect scenario to promote fruitful scientific discussions during the meeting and foster the ties within our community.

We hope to see you in Aveiro!
