Following a long tradition of joint meetings between several national photochemistry groups we are now coming together for the fifth time in the Gastein Valley. We can already look on a quite long and successful history:

 Year  Location  Local Organizer
 1998  Badgastein  Kisch/Erlangen
 2004  Badgastein  Griesbeck/Cologne
 2006  Bad Hofgastein  Landgraf/Graz
 2008  Bad Hofgastein  Landgraf/Graz
 2010  Bad Hofgastein  Landgraf/Graz
 2012  Bad Hofgastein  Landgraf/Graz
 2014  Bad Hofgastein  upcoming

The conference is intended to be accessible for all photochemists independent of their country or position. Therefore we tried to keep the costs as low as possible. We have prepared the meeting without “paper mail” and printed information. Almost everything has been done electronically (web page, registration, submission of abstracts, circulars, etc.). We have also successfully tried to find sponsoring for the conference. Approximately 10-12 attendees will get a travel support by the local coordinator. Additional support by EPA is gratefully acknowledged.

In order to get more information, please have a look into our conference reports from 2006, 2008, and 2010.
