The Local Organising Committee in consultation with the IUPAC Committee for Chemistry Education has decided to postpone the 26th International Conference on Chemistry Education to July 2022.  The name of the conference will change to ICCE 2022.  Preliminary information about ICCE 2022 is given below.

18-22 July 2022.

Lagoon Beach Hotel and Conference Venue.

The call for abstracts will be repeated later this year. If you have already submitted an abstract, you will be invited to resubmit your abstract when the submission process re-opens.

The Lagoon Beach Hotel is offering the same rates as for ICCE 2022, namely R1710 (single) and R2010 (double/sharing).  Current bookings for accommodation will be changed to the new dates for those delegates who booked via the ICCE 2020 registration desk.  Please contact Lagoon Beach Hotel if you have made an independent booking.

We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town in January 2022.  We hope that you will be able to persuade your colleagues to take over your teaching duties to allow you to attend icce 2022.  January is a wonderful time to visit Cape Town as it is the height of summer with sunny days and warm temperatures.
