The conference also invites young researchers and students to present their works and encourages their discussion with senior researchers. Prospective researcher is required to submit an abstract of their work for consideration. 

Presenters in the conference are also invited to submit a full paper to be published in the historical first edition of ICS Physical Chemistry, an international journal managed by the Physical Chemistry Division of Indonesian Chemical Society, or in the AIP Conference Proceedings (indexed by Scopus).


About the Conference

International Conference on Physical Chemistry is a scientific meeting organized by the Physical Chemistry Division of Indonesian Chemical Society as a part of its annual meeting. The conference serves as a venue for the international and Indonesian scientists to meet and discuss their research development, mainly but not limited, in the frame of physical chemistry. On top of the knowledge sharing, the conference is expected to initiate fruitful collaborations among attendees. This year marks the first step for the conference. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has led us to believe that the conference has to be held virtually using online technologies for the safety of the attendee and the surrounding community.


Conference Scope

The conference will host the following mini-symposia that run in parallel:


  • Novel fuel and biofuel
  • Catalysts and catalysis
  • Frontiers in colloid and interface chemistry
  • Advances in nanomaterials
  • Quantum and classical molecular dynamics simulation for complex system
  • Computational methods for drug designs
  • Environmental physical chemistry
  • Physical chemistry education
