2018 Weimar

Senior chemist 2018 in Weimar - chemistry between classic and modern

Leonardo-Hotel in Weimar
Leonardo-Hotel in Weimar

The 7th SEC annual meeting took place from May 2-4, 2018 in Weimar. The venue for the Conference was the Leonardo Hotel in Weimar. 208 participants had registered for the Conference . The concept of a "conference hotel" instead of a congress center has proven its worth. Weimar was the Conference of short distances.

The participants rated the Conference as very good to excellent! The selection of lectures, the overall organization (SEC and GDCh conference team) and Weimar as the conference location (all with an average grade of 1.1!) Stand out in particular. With two exceptions, the average of all ratings is below 2.0. We have made a good choice with the Leonardo Hotel. The response rate for the reviews was approx. 50%!

A report on the Conference and selected photos will appear here shortly.

Supporting program

The lectures on the afternoon of May 2nd were supplemented in the evening by a Thuringian evening, a sociable get-together to get to know each other. After the lectures on Thursday morning (May 3), city and themed tours took place in Weimar in the afternoon. This was followed by a festive evening with an evening lecture (Dagmar Schipanski) and a banquet. On Friday morning (May 4th) there were lectures again, but this time with students whom we had invited with their teachers from the Weimar area.


Posters were presented throughout the event. They came from young chemists, young food chemists and seniors.


Many, but not all, presentations are available in PDF format. If you are interested, send an email to Wolfgang Gerhartz
