The CataLight Young Scientist Symposium (CYSS) is an annual conference organized by PhD students and junior PostDocs of SFB/TRR 234 CataLight aimed at researchers in an early career stage in the field of light-driven catalysis and related fields. By employing an online format, we want to allow for the participation of young scientists, in particular PhD students, from all over the globe and offer them an opportunity to share their work, which have been especially sparse over the last year due to the cancellation of on-site conferences. Therefore the event will emphasize on talks from young scientists accompanied by selected invited talks.

In line with the research area of CataLight the symposium aims to cover all facets of the highly interdisciplinary field of artifical photosynthesis and water-splitting. We therefore welcome contributions from a diverse range of fields, including design and synthesis of catalytic systems and support materials, (spectroscopic) characterization and theoretical research. For an in-depth explanation of our aims & scope, see our website.

CYSS2021 will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 21st and 30st September 2021.

To facilitate in-depth discussion discussion or even collaboration between participants of CYSS, we're accompanying the symposium with an instant messaging service that can be used to contact the speakers or any other participants with more in-depth questions or exchange contact information for further discussion.

CYSS is supported by the SFB/TRR 234 CataLight. We gratefully acknowledge the funding by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation - DFG).
