The 4th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries
2017-12-11 to 2017-12-15
Lyon, France
The organizing committee cordially invites you to attend the 4th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries, Catbior 2017, to be held in Lyon (France) from 11 to 15 December 2017. The 1st Catbior originated in 2011 in Málaga (Spain). Since then, the congress alternates worldwide in odd years: the 2nd congress was held in Dalian (China) in 2013, the 3rd one took place in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in 2015. This fourth edition will address the main issues in the dynamic field of catalysis for biorefineries, in fundamental and applied catalysis researches for biomass transformation. Special emphasis will be placed on the utilization of lignocellulosic or algal biomass and non-edible vegetable oils, which do not compete with food. It will be focused on the use of sustainable catalytic methodologies, heterogeneous and homogeneous, including hybrid or dual catalysis.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Lyon for this international event and to sharing with you the latest scientific progresses in the area of catalysis for biorefineries. link

XIth International School on Organometallic Chemistry “Marcial Moreno Mañas”
2018-06-06 to 2018-06-08
Oviedo, Spain

The International School on Organometallic Chemistry “Marcial Moreno Mañas” is an annual activity organized by the ORFEO-CINQA Network ( It aims to get together young students, early career researchers and well recognized, world-leading scientists in a good atmosphere to facilitate and generate exchange of scientific information and knowledge. The XIth edition of the school will feature 8 plenary lectures delivered by prominent researchers from European, American and Asian universities:

- Didier Bourissou (Université Paul Sabatier, France)

- Clémence Corminboeuf (EPFL, Switzerland)

- Christopher C. Cummins (MIT, USA)

- Matthias Driess (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany)

- Rubén Martín (ICIQ, Spain)

- Jonathan Nitschke (University of Cambridge, UK)

- Laurel L. Schafer (University of British Columbia, Canada)

- Vivian Wing-Wah Yam (University of Hong Kong, China)

The school will be completed with 19 oral contributions (postdoctoral researchers) and 37 flash presentations (PhD students) that will be selected from the attendants. Around 80 posters presentations are also expected. The International School on Organometallic Chemistry “Marcial Moreno Mañas” is an EuChemMS recognized event, and the topics covered include the synthesis, reactivity, properties and applications of organometallic compounds, homogeneous catalysis and metal-mediated synthetic organic chemistry. link
