Québec City welcomes the GOLD 2022 Conference

*** Given the extraordinary situation caused by the spread of COVID-19, the Gold conference will be postponed to 2022. This decision, we believe, will help the organization maximize the likelihood of a presential event. We are looking forward to receiving in Québec City the international community of scientists related to innovations with gold.

The GOLD 2022 conference will be held on July 17 – 20, 2022 in Québec City. Save these new dates!

The conference will take place at the Convention Centre located in a prime area of Québec City, Canada, surrounded by world‐class hotels and tourist attractions. The historic district of Old Québec, designated a world heritage treasure by UNESCO in 1985, is the only fortified city north of Mexico. Québec City is also renowned for its famous joie de vivre, and lively streets with numerous activities.

GOLD 2022 will be the 9th edition of the International conference series, following GOLD 2018 in Paris. As a material, gold has experienced a renewed interest from the scientific community during these last decades. It started with the field of catalysis by gold nanoparticles, and it is now expanding to booming scientific areas such as homogeneous catalysis, plasmonics, materials sciences, biotechnology, nanotechnology and therapeutic applications. The science of gold has thus become a highly multidisciplinary field.

To keep the scientific community informed and aware of the latest advances in the field of gold for high-technology applications, the Gold 2022 committee will launch a series of Webinars on each one of the main scientific topics of the conference (see below). We invite the community to keep an eye on the website and to become acquainted with the main scientific topics and categories of the conference. In the next weeks the Gold 2022 committee will reach out to the scientific community and proceed to a series of invitations to prominent researchers in each field. We believe this approach will develop interest in the community, while helping the conference organization to structure the scientific event in the most optimal and dynamic manner.

The website will be updated in the coming weeks.

We look forward to welcome you for your next conference in the beautiful City of Québec!

In the meanwhile, take good care of yourselves and your families, and stay safe.
