International Symposium on Photochromism 2016 (ISOP2016)


The organizing committee cordially invites you to participate in the 8th International Symposium on Photochromism 2016 (ISOP 2016), which will be held at East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST), Shanghai, China on November 4-7, 2016.

 The 8th ISOP is a continuation of the successful series of symposiums on this topic, such as the very successful last two symposia 2010 in Yokohama and 2013 in Berlin. The international conference aims to provide a forum for discussing innovative research and development in the research field of photochromic molecule and functional photochromic materials, supramolecule and molecular switches, photochromic applications and relative phenomena.

 We hope that the conference can give you an opportunity to meet your friends and colleagues, meanwhile provide a forum for further interdisciplinary research discussion and international cooperation. For more details about the symposium and registration, please visit the homepage of the conference (

 We would appreciate you for your participation. If you have any inquiry, please feel free to contact with us by sending e-mail to the secretary (

The final program and the guide for the conference can be downloaded now. 

The poster size should be 120 cm (Hight) and 90 cm (Width).

Welcome to Shanghai!

Phenics Symposium will be held right after the 8th ISOP at the same place in the afternoon of Monday November 7th, and a banquet is scheduled in the evening of 7th.  You can find more detailed information from the link below: 

The International Research Group on PHoto-switchablE orgaNIC molecular systems & deviceS (IRG PHENICS) is a network of research groups working on (mainly organic) photochromism. Supported in France by Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) as a « Groupement de Recherche International » (GDRI), it gathers members from China, Germany, Japan and Russia.

This network has been organizing meetings annually since 2006. The 11th PHENICS International Network Symposium (7th November, 2016) will be organized consecutively to the 8th International Symposium On Photochromism (4th – 7th November 2016) in Shanghai. We thus expect participants not only from the network, but also from a wider scientific community.

The meeting will consist of about 14 oral presentations from 14:00 to 18:00 7th November. Topics will be related, not only, but mainly to the following aspects:

 Elaboration of new photochromic molecules and materials
 Mechanisms deciphering of photochromic systems
 Effects related to photochromism
 Nanoscale photochromism
 Applications of photochromism in optoelectronic systems, in biology, and other fields
