Our topics will include:

  • New chemical approaches for circularity
    Novel chemistry routes (e.g., bio-based/renewable feedstock, sustainable catalysis) for a circular and sustainable chemical sector

  • Sustainable and circular design for functional chemicals and materials
    Discussing barriers and potential to increase products’ circularity via eco-design while also offering excellent functionality

  • Waste re-integration and conversion into high-value products with zero hazards
    Chemically viable, environmentally friendly, and economically feasible paths of end-of-life recycling and upcycling

  • Process integration and system optimization
    How chemical processes and systems can be innovatively and sustainably connected, integrated, and operated to enable an efficient and cost-effective circular-driven industrial platform

  • Sustainable governance for a circular chemical economy
    The role of policies, regulations, economic measures, and financial instruments in fostering an innovative, responsible, prosperous circular chemical economy

Abstracts received before the abstract deadline will be considered for poster presentations and/or a limited number of oral presentations. If your abstract is accepted, it will be included in our online abstract booklet that will be distributed to all conference participants.

Any abstracts submitted after the deadline will be eligible for poster presentations only. Abstracts will not be published, and authors also reserve the right to publish their work elsewhere.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the organizers to ensure that the topic of the submission is consistent with the scope of the topics covered at the symposium. A small number of abstracts will be selected for short talks by the organizing committee.

Once the abstract is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for and present at the conference.

A condition of submission is that, if accepted, the poster and/or talk will be presented at the conference by one of the authors.

Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence.

If you have more than one paper accepted for presentation at the conference (oral or poster), there is an additional registration fee of £50 per additional paper. Please select the additional item during the registration process and indicate all your abstract reference numbers when prompted.  Please note this is for papers that you are the presenting author of, not papers that you are co-author of.

Financial support

Elsevier Family Support Awards

We are excited to announce that Elsevier has provided funds to help supplement the costs related to childcare responsibilities for early-career researchers attending our 2024 Cell Symposia. We understand that, in both academia and industry, the years following the completion of a doctoral degree are critical for exposure, recognition, and networking in order to secure or maintain a position. For many scientists, these years also coincide with starting a family, making it difficult to achieve a work-life balance and embrace one’s career objectives. Up to $500 per award will be granted to students, postdocs, and/or young investigators (within your first 5 years). Delegates with accepted abstracts are eligible for this award (awarded on a first come first serve basis).

To request an application form, please email

Deadline for award applications April 12, 2024.

Cell Symposia scholarships

Cell Press, along with the Elsevier Conferences team, is excited to provide scholarships for researchers who have historically been excluded or underrepresented in the STEM fields. We believe that greater equity in science requires revisiting established narratives and visuals shaping society's view of successful scientists.

Apply here for a scholarship that provides complimentary registration to an upcoming Cell Symposia.
