On behalf of the Portuguese Young Chemists group from the Portuguese Society of Chemistry, we kindly welcome you to join us at the 7th Portuguese Young Chemists Meeting, set in the welcoming city of Bragança, from May 19th to 21st 2021.
This biennial conference, dating back to 2008, is dedicated to gather young researchers from all subfields of Chemistry, as well as other related scientific areas of research. Young chemists and researchers from any nationality are particularly encouraged to share their scientific highlights amongst their peers from chemical sciences, expand their international research network and attend lectures from recognized experts in various field of Chemistry.

The aim of the Webinar is to demystify the idea that publishing in high impact factor journals is an impossible task or that it is reserved for a small group of renowned experts and Professors from World Top Higher Education Institutions. In this Webinar, participants will be guided in all sections that compose a scientific paper, the aspects that need particular attention, and how to address each section of the manuscript. The ultimate goal is to stimulate and encourage MSc and Ph.D. students in their thesis final stage to get “out of the box” and plan, organize, execute and acquire the “fire in the belly” to publish their research outputs.
The Webinar is open to a general Academia audience, mainly targeting students but also open to researchers and early career Professors. The Webinar can also be attended by participants from diverse scientific domains, since it is developed in a general way, with some exercises and examples referring to particular areas (several domains within the scientific field of Chemistry), specifically developed to meet the participants’ background and main scientific subjects
Oral communications will consist of 12 minutes for presentation, plus 3 minutes for Q & A.
E-Poster should have a horizontal (or landscape) orientation with A4 (210 × 297 mm) size. Prepare your poster using adequate letter type and size to ensure good readability. Well-designed figures, graphs, and tables will enhance the attractiveness of your poster. Posters should be uploaded in the submission platform as an attachment/annex (PDF file with 10 MB maximum) to the previous submitted communication until May 10th. The E-poster file should be saved as follows: name_surname_topic.pdf
E-Poster presentations will be available for viewing through the poster gallery on the meeting website. Posters will be displayed online before the event starts, and will continue online for 10 days after the meeting.
Each registered participant will be entitled to submit ONE ABSTRACT, for oral or poster presentation.
The meeting’s official language will be English.
Abstracts should be submitted via the SPQ registration site. Please, log in using the login and the password provided during the registration process and then proceed with "abstract submission". Please use the Microsoft Word file (abstract template).
The abstract must not exceed one A4 page. Decision between oral and poster communications will be made by the scientific committee upon evaluation of the submitted abstracts. The abstract file should be saved as follows: name_surname_poster.doc or name_surname_oral.doc (or docx in either case).
Deadline for abstract submission:
March 29th April 12th, 2021
Information about communications acceptance: April 27th, 2021
Accepted abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts (only abstracts of registered participants will be included).
Please make sure your abstract does not contain any spelling or grammar mistakes.
The Portuguese Young Chemists Award (PYCA) attributed by the Young Chemists Group (GQJ) aims to promote excellence in Chemistry developed by young researchers, with particular focus on the scientific impact on the society. The prize is awarded every two
years to recent doctors with less than 35 years and laureates the work done during their PhD. It is opened to Portuguese or foreigner young researchers that received his/her PhD degree in any field of the chemical sciences from a Portuguese University between January 2018 and December 2019.
An Award will be attributed to a oral communication presented by a master/PhD student during the 7th PYCheM. Selection will be based on three criteria: General interest of the research, Clarity of the presentation, and Quality of the results presented.
The award will consist of one English Editing service (Basic Pack) of a manuscript having the student as the first author. The award will be announced during the Closing Ceremony.
