Karlsruhe Schloss

Location and date 

ISSP 16 is jointly organized by the IUPAC and the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal (INE) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) . The scientific sessions will be held at KIT Campus South in the NTI lecture hall from 21 to 25 of July 2014.


The International Symposium on Solubility Phenomena and Related Equilibrium Processes (ISSP) is an established bi-annual symposium gathering international experts on solubility studies to exchange new research and concepts. ISSP is addressing the general importance of solubility phenomena in a variety of settings ranging from green chemistry to nuclear waste disposal and modern technical applications. Specifically highlighting the importance of chemical thermodynamics and solubility studies both in fundamental and applied science the meeting is featuring a wide agenda of topics. The meeting will include invited and contributed oral and poster presentations ranging from basic equilibrium measurements to advanced theoretical predictions. ISSP-16 is offering a dedicated scientific platform for presenting, discussing and promoting the study of solubility phenomena and related equilibrium processes.
The symposium follows a series of previous meetings: ISSP-15 (2012, Xining, China), ISSP-14 (2010, Leoben, Austria), ISSP-13 (2008, Dublin, Ireland), ISSP-12 (2006, Freiberg, Germany) and ISSP-11 (2004, Aveiro, Portugal).


ISSP 16 will be held at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Karlsruhe  , Germany. Karlsruhe is situated in the sunny southern German section of the Rhine river and lies approximately between Strasbourg, France and Heidelberg, Germany. It is surrounded by interesting tourist areas such as the Black Forest to the south, the wine regions of the Alsace and the Palatinate to the west, the Neckar Valley to the north. Stuttgart, the capital of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg and home of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche automobiles, is around 80 km to the East. Karlsruhe can easily be reached via train or car from Frankfurt am Main, Strasbourg, or Stuttgart international airports (see Travel). With a population of around 300.000, Karlsruhe is a medium-sized city with more than adequate hotel accommodation capacity and an excellent public transportation system.
