Poreč, one of the most beautiful Croatian and Istrian resorts, is a town of rich cultural and historical heritage and a seductive charm, all embraced by the untouched nature and crystal clear Adriatic sea. It is easy to reach Poreč either by a brand new Croatian motorway network, or by a plane. Two international airports are located at a distance of less than an hour of pleasant drive – Airport in Trieste and Pula airport. Poreč is at just 2.5 hours of a pleasant drive from Zagreb or Ljubljana, and seven(ish) hours of comfortable drive will get you there from, for example, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade or Milan.


Valamar Diamant Hotel is located in the charming bay along the beach Brulo, at only 200 m from the sea and 900 m (a 10-minute of a relaxing stroll) from the historic downtown Poreč. Conference Centre in the Valamar Diamant Hotel, which will host the Croatian and European chemists and chemical engineers, participants of the 25HSKIKI, is designed to the most modern way and has top-quality equipment for the maintenance of medium-sized meetings. The brand new glitzy hall for sports and conferences will be for the purpose of the 25HSKIKI divided into two halls (700 m2 and 300 m2) where the sponsorship exhibition, poster, sessions, opening and closing ceremony and plenary lectures will take place. Along with this huge ceonference hall, 25HSKIKI has, at its disposal, a number of smaller (but no less comfortable) halls for section lectures. HS wireless internet is available throughout the hotel, all the conference rooms are equipped with a state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, and 25HSKIKI will have its own entrance and reception desk.


During the three days the conference, organizers have prepared an extremely comprehensive program. Six prominent plenary speakers from six countries on three continents have confirmed their participation. We look forward to two workshops in the organization of which are actively involved representatives of the chemical industry (dedicated primarily to young researchers and students): “How to succeed in science?” and “I can do this – science and the market.” During three days, the work of the Conference will be organized through three parallel sessions, each of which will have two invited lectures (lasting 30 minutes) and three presentations of 20 minutes, which the Programme Committee will choose from submitted abstracts. And, last but not the least – the poster session. Social program, which includes the opening ceremony and gala dinner, will be enriched with a “student mixer”, entertainment for young researchers with the DJ performance.

Welcome to 25HSKIKI with international participation, Croatian chemical congress of the new generation.
