Dear Colleagues
We take great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the 9th International Meeting on Halogen Chemistry (HALCHEM IX), which will be held at UNIVERSITY of PERUGIA, Italy from 23th to 26th September, 2019.  HALCHEM IX follows the old tradition of the symposia  that involved and connected experts in halogen chemistry since 2002 when the first edition was organized in Sardinia by Professor Francesco Devillanova.  The first four meetings have been organized in the south of Europe [in 2004 (HALCHEM II, Sardinia, Italy), 2006 (HALCHEM III, Ioannina, Greece), 2008 (HALCHEM IV, Barcelona, Spain), 2010 (HALCHEM V, Cagliari, Italy).  The HALCHEM VI moved to India and was held in Bangalore in 2012.  Then the HALCHEM VII returned to Europe (Czestochowa, Poland in 2015) to move again in Asia with HALCHEM VIII that was held at Inuyama, Japan in 2017.  Even if in the first editions, HALCHEM meetings have been organized for a smaller circle of participants (~30-40 researchers coming from several countries), the last meetings in India and Japan attracted the participation of more than 150 scientists covering a different areas of interests connected with halogen chemistry.  A unique friendly atmosphere that characterized all the previous editions facilitated interactions between the participants creating the bases for several collaborations.

HALCHEM IX aim to follow the traditions giving to all the participants  an adequate time for the presentation (invited lecture (30 min), designated lecture (20 min), and poster presentations. Contributions from scientific community working in any areas of halogen chemistry and biology (such as synthetic biological and theoretical aspects, spectroscopy, supramolecular chemistry, halogen bonding, hypervalent halogen compounds, medicinal chemistry, atmospheric chemistry, etc.) are welcome.
