The 13th International Symposium on the Synthesis and Applications of Isotopes and Isotopically Labelled Compounds is going to be held on June 3–7 2018 in the capital of the Czech Republic – Prague – the City of a Hundred Spires. The symposium will take place in the historical rooms of the National House of Vinohrady. This Symposium is the 13th in the series of international meetings organised by the International Isotope Society every 3 years.
The last meeting took place in 2015 in Princeton, New Jersey, USA.
The scientific programme covers all aspects of application of isotopes either radioactive or stable in such areas as drug development, body imaging and diagnostics, environmental studies etc. The preparation of compounds labelled either with radioactive or stable isotopes and development of radiometric analytical techniques will be covered, too. Special session is dedicated to new emerging fields of application of isotopes and isotopic techniques.
The International School on Organometallic Chemistry “Marcial Moreno Mañas” is an annual activity organized by the ORFEO-CINQA Network (https://orfeocinqa.es/). 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.
The 6th Antibody Industrial Symposium 2018 (AIS2018) congress, organized by the LabEx MAbImprove and MabDesign, offers an ideal conference for scientists, industries, physicians and policy makers to exchange about therapeutic antibodies.
The scientific Committee has set-up an exciting program focusing on the following theme: “Targets for mAbs: Innovative Approaches for their Discovery & Validation”.
The 2 days program includes keynote lectures, pitch talks of new creative projects, industrial talks from pharmaceutical companies and a poster session. Furthermore, there will be several opportunities for networking, companies to showcase their new products and technologies as well as dedicated time for business partnering.
The topics covered during this meeting are:
-Validated Targets: lessons learned from success & failure in clinical
-Discovery Approaches: Accessing clinical material, Target Identification platforms, OMICS-based analysis
-New Approaches/Technologies for Discovery & Validation of New Targets for mAbs
-Pre-Clinical Validation: Methods, Models & Companion tests
-Emerging Targets: Immunocheckpoints & Microenvironment

The 28th International Conference on Organometallic Chemistry (ICOMC-2018) will be held from 15th to 20th July 2018 in Florence, Italy, and organized by the Institute of Chemistry of Organometallic Compounds (ICCOM) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), in association with the official PCO of the event, Adria Congrex Srl.
ICOMC 2018 will provide a unique opportunity to present and disseminate all the main aspects of modern organometallic chemistry in a lively, multidisciplinary and modern environment. The scientific program will be organised in lecture and poster parallel sessions, focused on recent scientific advances in key and emerging areas of organometallic chemistry including, but not limited to:
Asymmetric Syntheses by Organometallics
Bio-Organometallic and Medicinal Chemistry
Organometallics for Energy Storage and Production
Clusters, Coordination Polymers and MOFs
f-Block Organometallic Synthesis
Green Chemistry and Catalysis
Main Group Organometallic Synthesis
Materials and Nanomaterials
Reactivity, Structure and Bonding
Transition Metal Organometallic Synthesis
Two lecture session will be organised as themed minisymposia, centred on the topics:
“Advances in photovoltaic chemistry and technology” and “Challenges in CO2 activation and utilization”.
Attendance of young researchers and students will be encouraged and supported by affordable registration fees and preferential rates for accommodation.
The main objective of the Congress will be the presentation of the latest advances in the field of discovery and development of drugs for the treatment of neglected diseases and other diseases that are relevant for public health in Argentina and worldwide. The Congress will take place in the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry - University of Buenos Aires, together with the celebration of the 35th anniversary of the foundation of the Institute of Drug Chemistry and Metabolism (IQUIMEFA) (UBA-CONICET).
National and foreign visitors will participate in the Congress, including health care professionals as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students. The scientific programme will include topics related to parasitic, viral and bacterial diseases with high impact on public health,particularly, in developing countries. Chagas’ disease, African trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, dengue and mycetoma, among others will be discussed as well as vector-borne diseases, such as malaria, zika, chikungunya and Argentine haemorrhagic fever.
