IACS is an association of catalysis societies from 30 countries. Its objectives is to promote scientific and technological progress in the fiels of catalytic chemistry, and specifically to provide a forum for formal and informal discussions amongst scientists and engineers from time to time (typically quadrennial) by promoting the organization of International Congress on Catalysis (ICC). IACS also aims to structure, support and defence catalysis as science and technology through out the world.

The French catalysis community will host the next International Congress on Catalysis, which will be held in Lyon on July 14-19, 2024.
