Hydrogen bonded systems play very important role in many disciplines like chemistry, biology, astrophysics and materials sciences.

The International Conference on „Horizons in Hydrogen Bond Research – HBond2015” is a bi-annual conference series with a long tradition, will gather scientists working in the field of hydrogen bonding research, from weak to strong interactions, studied virtually all states of matter by a multitude of experimental and theoretical methods. Moreover, the role of H-bonds in supramolecular chemistry will be presented. Also results of studies of similar interactions like halogen bonds or ptolegenic bonds are welcome.

HBond2015 is the twenty first in the series of conferences on hydrogen bonding which was initiated by Prof. Lucjan Sobczyk in Poland in 1977.
