26th International Symposium on Gas Kinetics and Related Phenomena

Symposium Congrès
The Symposium is organised under the auspices of the Gas Kinetics Group of the Faraday Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry. The Symposium has a long history, dating back to 1967. It has been held every two years, with host cities generally alternating between continental Europe and the English-speaking world, mainly the UK. The Royal Society of Chemistry’s prestigious Polanyi medal is traditionally presented at this Symposium. As the Symposium was unfortunately cancelled in 2020 (it was due to be held at KIT in Karlsruhe, Germany), both the 2020 and the 2022 Polanyi medals will be awarded at the 2022 Symposium.

The Symposium provides an open forum for discussion of the latest experimental and theoretical research on a wide range of topics related to gas-phase chemical kinetics, including: combustion; reaction dynamics; atmospheric, interstellar and planetary chemistry; heterogeneous- and particle-chemistry.

The list of invited speakers includes:

Frédérique Battin-Leclerc, CNRS, Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France*
Basile Curchod, University of Durham, UK
Barbara Ervens, CNRS, University of Clermont Auvergne, France
​Aamir Farooq, KAUST, Saudi Arabia
