Since 1997 each year, the International Society for the Philosophy of  Chemistry (ISPC) organizes meetings where scholars working on philosophy of chemistry share their research results and discuss the current topics of the discipline.

‪The ISPC is inviting abstract submissions for its annual summer symposium, which will be held on July 3-5, 2017 at the Laboratory Sphère, which belongs to the University Paris Diderot, in Paris (France)‬‬‬.

Abstracts for presentations are currently being accepted for the International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry — Summer Symposium 2017. The abstract submission deadline has been extended to February 12, 2017. Submissions should be sent both to and

The abstract should be short and convey the idea ideally in no more than 350 words, including what the author considers to be the key-references of her/his work.  The scientific committee will scrutinize all the abstracts in February. The organizer will then propose a synthesis of the different standpoints, and will contact each author for informing her/him about the decision made by the committee concerning her/his proposal. The whole procedure will be achieved by the end of February 2017.
