The 2016 Spring ConfChem online conference has begun. The title of this conference is "Science, Disarmament, and Diplomacy in Chemical Education: The Example of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons". This conference will run May 2 - June 30, 2016. Visit http://confchem.ccce.divched.org/2016SpringConfChem to participate.
ConfChem is probably the oldest ongoing online conference in the chemical sciences, with the first ConfChem conference occurring in 1993, before the advent of the HTML-enabled World Wide Web. In the first ConfChem (called ChemConf), papers were distributed over the nascent internet and discussed on a list serve. The conference papers and images were obtained over ftp or gopher servers, the papers were posted as ASCII text files and the images required a separate image viewer. For many of the participants this was their first introduction to email.
