The Annual Meeting of the ICS has a long history since its establishment in 1933 and is a well-known event in the scientific landscape of the State of Israel. These colorful gatherings of Israeli chemists usually occur in mid-February, the inter-semester break for all Israeli universities.
Following ICS tradition, the chemistry departments of the six major research universities share responsibility for organizing these meetings in a six-year cycle in a constant order: the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Technion, Tel Aviv University, Bar-Ilan University, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and the Weizmann Institute of Science. Since the 87th Meeting of 2024, Ariel University joined this cycle.
Another unique tradition the ICS has followed for more than 25 years is hosting high-profile delegations of distinguished scientists and graduate students from top academic institutions worldwide to deliver plenary, keynote lectures, and posters. This tradition has created outstanding opportunities for many Israeli scientists, particularly graduate students, to interact with world-renowned chemists, thus enhancing the prospects of networking and scientific collaboration.
