The CPLT conference series resulted from the merger of two long-standing international conferences: the Gordon Conference on the Chemistry and Physics of Matrix-Isolated Species, which began in 1983, and the International Conference on Low Temperature Chemistry, which began in 1994.
The first united CPLT conference was organized by Mika Pettersson and Jan Lundell and took place in 2013 in Jyväskylä, Finland. CPLT 2014 was organized by Vladimir Feldman and Tatyana Shabatina and took place in Suzdal, Russia. At the 2014 CPLT conference, the international scientific committee decided to hold CPLT conferences every two years. CPLT 2016 was organized by Joëlle Mascetti, Claudine Crépin, and Stéphane Coussan and took place in Biarritz, France.
Members of the CPLT international scientific committee for the 2016-2018 biennium are:
