We invite you to take part at the 21st International Meeting of IHSS “Complex humic systems: in search of chemical, industrial, and regulatory identity”, which take place on September 17-23, 2022 in Moscow, Russia. The conference will be conducted under auspices of International Humic Substances Society and International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. Local organizers of the IHSS-21 are Lomonosov Moscow State University and the CIS IHSS Chapter.
In these uneasy times of pandemics, we will try to bring the humic researchers all over the world into the peaceful harbor of the Sailing Club “Vodnik” located on the picturesque shores of the Klyasma water reservoir nearby Moscow city. It is a great and comfortable place full of sun, views of open water, sailing boats, and ships. Despite this relaxed atmosphere, we hope on stormy scientific discussions: in the focus of the IHSS-2021 will be elaboration of definition of humic substances as of complex chemical matter. We will follow the evolution of organic matter – from Cosmos to the deep ocean, we will look at the role of ancient organic matter in the climate change, we will speak about non-fuel use of coal, nature-like approaches to carbon sequestration, raise the issue of humic research as a part of ecoadaptive chemistry and technology.
We put a very big value on industrial applications of humic substances. This is why we will organize the Fourth International Exhibition of Humic Products and Technologies in the framework of this IHSS conference. The business partners are very welcome to join this event. We also hope that this will be a joint event with HPTA (Humic Products Trade Association). We also plan to organize the School for young scientists on instrumental and bioanalytical analysis of humic substances.
Look forward to see you in Moscow: we hope so much on face-to-face meeting, but we will be definitely prepared to hybrid and fully online event. We cannot predict the future, but we can hope for the best.
With kind regards and best wishes,
Irina Perminova and Maria Zykova
