Future Congresses

The 2021 Virtual ISSFAL Congress will take place on 5 consecutive days from May 10th to 14th.  Registration is now open, visit the ISSFAL Congress website for more information.

We are delighted to inform you the Congress will take place in collaboration with our colleagues at the American Oil Chemists' Society (AOCS) who are holding their virtual Annual Meeting at the same time and have generously made their platform and infrastructure available to us. This will not only benefit the ISSFAL financially, but also will enable us to reach a wider audience.

The 14th ISSFAL International Congress will run as a separate, independent ‘track’ alongside the main AOCS meeting. Each day will comprise two sessions with start times varying in order to give delegates in different international time zones the opportunity to attend ‘live’.


We look forward to welcoming you to the Western Coast of France in 2022!

Programme announcements and other information including registration will re-open in late 2021. Please continue to check this website for updated information. Please note, many submitted abstracts for consideration for the cancelled 2020 Congress. Those abstracts, unless you contacted us, are now under consideration for oral or poster presentations for THE NEWLY ANNOUNCED 2021 Virtual Meeting. Details and other announcements are pending, but we will contact you before the end of January 2021. In addition, if you applied for a New Investigator Award, Travel Award or any other ISSFAL Award related to the 2021 Congress, those applications are being evaluated and we will contact you about their status. Thank you, and we hope you are in good health, and look forward to the time when we can once again gather together.
