International Solvay Institutes

Local Scientific Committees

The local scientific committees are composed of chemists and physicists active in Belgian research institutions. Their mission is to provide advice and help in the preparation of the scientific program of the local activities (i.e., all activities but the Solvay Conferences, which are run by the International Committees): workshops, chairs and colloquia.
