1–6 September 2013 14th European Symposium on Organic Reactivity (ESOR 2013)
Prague, Czech Republic
The ESOR Symposia are dedicated to fundamental research in organic chemistry and related areas, emphasizing the understanding of reactions (e.g., mechanisms, energetics) as well as the structures of compounds and materials. Experimental as well as theoretical contributions are welcomed with a particular preference for multidisciplinary approaches. The ESOR conference series started in Paris in 1987 and had been held every second year since then: Padova, Italy (1989), Göteborg, Sweden (1991), Newcastle, UK (1993), Santiago de Compostela, Spain (1995), Louvain la Neuve, Belgium (1997), Ulm, Germany (1999), Cavtat, Croatia (2001), Oslo, Norway (2003), Rome, Italy (2005), Faro, Portugal (2007), Haifa, Israel (2009), and Tartu, Estonia (2011). The program will include plenary and invited lectures, oral presentations, poster presentations, and an exhibition. We wish to cover all important areas of physical-organic chemistry and its interactions with other sciences, e.g., mechanistic studies as a driving force in modern synthesis, physical-organic chemistry of complex systems, new experimental and theoretical methods in organic chemistry. The opening lecture about the fascinating world of chemical robotics will be provided by František Štěpánek, ERC grant holder from the ICT in Prague (Czech Republic).
