The Carnival Conference Session (CCS) is an annual scientific meeting organized by the junior research group leaders of the department of chemistry at the University of Cologne. The CCS takes place on Wednesday before carnival. Due to the Covid-19 restricitions, there will be probably no CCS-2021, unless organised spontaneously (stay tuned!).  CCS-2022 will be the 9th Carnival Conference Session and will take place on February 23rd 2022 at the department of chemisty at the University of Cologne. 

The concept of the CCS is to cover the broad range of chemistry by invited lectures and by a poster session. The lectures are given by junior researchers (i. e. any researcher without a permanent professorship). The poster session is open for any member of a junior research group. The attendance of CCS is free of charge and open for researchers, students and any interested audience.
