The objective of the EUROPEAN PHOTOCHEMISTRY ASSOCIATION (EPA) is to promote the development of photochemistry in Europe and contacts among photochemists.

The European Photochemistry Association – EPA – is concerned with various experimental and theoretical aspects of the interaction of light with molecular systems, ranging from basic knowledge and practical know-how in photochemistry to application in areas such as chemical synthesis, electronics, material science, nanotechnology, biology and medicine.

International Conference on Photochemistry – 30th Edition

Virtual Conference – July 19 – 23, 2021

The 30th edition of the International Conference on Photochemistry (ICP2021) will be organised virtually from July 19 to 23, 2021 .The conference was initially planned to take place in Geneva, Switzerland. Given the present health situation and the large uncertainty concerning its evolution over the coming months, the organising committee decided to shift to a fully virtual format.


Registration for the International Conference on Photochemistry – 30th Edition meeting to be held virtually in July 2021 is open.

The virtual conference will be as similar as possible to an event happening onsite and will offer many new opportunities. The organizing and the scientific committees are working hard to prepare an attractive and exciting scientific program, which covers the most recent advances in photochemical and photophysical sciences in their broadest sense, and reflect the new frontiers in these fields. As a participant, you will be able to attend sessions, watch plenary and invited lectures, explore networking opportunities, exchange with other attendees and engage with exhibitors at their virtual booth, thanks to the powerful virtual conference platform provided by the conference organizing agency we teamed up with for this event.

28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry

Amsterdam, July 2022

After the unfortunate cancellation in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope to welcome the photochemistry community in Amsterdam in July 2022.

Registration for the 28th PhotoIUPAC meeting to be held in July 2022 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands Registration will open on December 15 2021.

Conference updates will be available in the Meetings section.

The 28th IUPAC Symposium on Photochemistry continues a long tradition of conferences where experts in photochemistry in a broad sense exchange the latest results, and where scientists and engineers who use light in their research or application can pick up new ideas and strengthen their knowledge of the specifics of the interaction of light and matter.

The scientific topics to be covered in the Symposium include areas of unparalleled impact in the world today. These include renewable energy sources, green chemistry, atmospheric photochemistry, single molecule microscopy and super resolution imaging.

Important modification regarding Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences publishing

Dear Members of the European Photochemistry Association,

The EPA is proud to announce that from January 1st, 2021, PPS will be published by Springer Nature. A 5-year contract was signed by the two ownership societies, the EPA and the ESP, to develop, publish, and promote the journal, after the Royal Society of Chemistry, which published the journal since 2002, informed us that it would not seek to prolong the publishing contract and instead focus on its core journals. Work is well under way to ensure a smooth transition for both authors and readers, and maintain continued access to the journal and its archives for society members. There will be no impact on the manuscript flow, or on how you submit and publish your papers in PPS.

The EPA is delighted to embark on this stimulating partnership with Springer Nature for the continued success of PPS and is very excited by the opportunities it brings. The new publishing agreement will carry new benefits for our members and add to the visibility of the journal.

Our new publishing partners, represented by Steffen Pauly, share our enthusiasm: “We look forward to publishing PPS and developing content and strategy of the journal in the next five years. By adding this comprehensive journal to our portfolio we are pleased to be able to offer our readers more high-quality content in the fields of photochemistry and photobiology.
