One of the main activities of the catalysis group of the Norwegian chemical society is to organize the Norwegian catalysis symposium. Below is a list of venues, programs, and minutes of the symposia held since the foundation of the catalysis group in 1990. This symposium is the only scientific forum for everyone involved in the field in Norway. On going research and industrial activities are presented at this meeting, which is organized every fall, albeit not in a year where both the European and Nordic symposia are also held.
In addition to these meetings, the catalysis group and/or the members of the board of the catalysis group have participated in the organization of several other meetings. A list is given below.
