COVID-19 has impacted us worldwide, challenging us to quickly adapt to this new reality. This has also impacted us as a scientific community limiting the opportunities to research and discuss the latest advances in the field of Ionic Liquids and Deep Eutectic Solvents.

Amid much uncertainty around how the situation will unfold in the coming months, our team made the difficult but necessary decision to host the 6th Iberoamerican Meeting on Ionic Liquids IMIL2021 Online, as the safety of our colleagues and friends is a priority for us.

The IMIL 2021 conference will be hosted from the 24th to 26th of May 2021 virtually.  We hope that many members of our scientific community will be able to join us from home.

The deadline for abstract submission is March 19, 2021.

Soon we will post the new early bird registration dates and values.

"The 6th edition of the Iberoamerican Meeting on Ionic Liquids".

“The 6th Edition of the Iberoamerican meeting on Ionic Liquids will be hosted online, from the 24th to 26th of May 2021.  The aim of this meeting is to provide a space of discussion for researchers on the latest ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvent applications.

Ionic liquids are classes of solvents that exhibit properties such as negligible vapor pressure, wide liquid range, wide electrochemical window, tunable properties and high thermal/chemical stability. Due to these special properties, they have found a wide range of applications which this meeting would like to provide a space for discussion.”

The scientific program will offer plenary lectures, submitted keynote lectures, standard oral presentations and poster sessions. Authors should submit their contribution in an available abstract template. The scientific committee reserves the right to make the final decision on how the contribution will be presented during the congress. The congress language is English.

Abstract Submission

Application for presentation of a manuscript must be submitted on the Registration section. Every application must be accompanied by max. 1 page abstract in English uploaded in the interactive application form. Application form without summary will not be considered. The summary should be comprehensive and suitable for reviewing by members of the Scientific Committee.


The deadline for the submission of the abstract for oral or porter presentation is March 19, 2021.

Supporting Publication

The special issue will feature papers presented at the meeting that cover important topics in phase equilibria and fluid properties. The submission window will be from June 15th – August 15th. Submissions will be done through the Fluid Phase Equilibria online submission portal, selecting the article type: VSI 2021 IMIL. The manuscripts will be published online in a virtual special issue as soon as accepted and be collected on the VSI page of the journal home page.
