15–19 October 2023 31st International Symposium on the Chemistry of Natural Products and the 11th International Congress on Biodiversity (ISCNP31 and ICOB11)

On behalf of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), we are glad to inform you that the 31st International Symposium on the Chemistry of Natural Products and the 11th International Congress on Biodiversity (ISCNP31 and ICOB11), originally scheduled for 2020 and postponed because of the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, will be held on October 15th–19th 2023 in Napoli, Italy.

The Italian chemical community has a long tradition in the chemistry of natural products, both of terrestrial and marine origin, as well as in the investigation and preservation of both terrestrial and marine biodiversity. This is especially true in the Campania region, where the leading scientific groups at the University of Napoli “Federico II”, University of Salerno, Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry (CNR) and Zoological Station “Anton Dohrn” are actively involved in furthering these aims by means of a solid network of scientific relationships and collaborations around the world. Scientists from these institutions are also involved in the organization of the International Summer School on Natural Products (ISSNP), a course sponsored by the Società Chimica Italiana (SCI), which is hosted every two years in the area of Napoli and is specifically designed for PhD students and young researchers aiming to acquire an interdisciplinary and intersectoral understanding of the state of the art in natural products chemistry and biology ( The Neapolitan area is also the headquarter of the Ischia Advanced School of Organic Chemistry (IASOC) (, a scientific event that aims to bring together leading scientists of the highest international reputation to provide an overview of the latest advances in various areas of organic chemistry and a unique forum allowing cross-fertilization of ideas between natural product chemistry and organic synthesis and their multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary implications.

The city of Napoli, located along the Mediterranean coast in the southern part of Italy, is the third-most populous city of Italy after Roma and Milano, with a population of almost one million people. The bay of Napoli, with the eastside landscape of Mt. Vesuvius, the Sorrento coastline and the characteristic profile of the island of Capri, has served in the centuries as source of inspiration for many artists. The multitude of local attractions can satisfy the interests of different type of tourists, from the art and history enthusiast to the nature and sea lover, from the eno-gastronomy to the ancient traditions. Besides the city center, its historical sites and its museums, the sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum are of great archaeological value and are famous worldwide for their astounding ruins. Not to mention the natural beauty of the astonishing Amalfi coastline, with the charming island of Capri, and the extraordinary volcanic scenarios of the Phlaegrean Fields with the world famous Solfatara fumaroles, the small intriguing island of Procida and the green thermal island of Ischia each boast unique identities and history.

ISCNP31 and ICOB11 are expected to be a fantastic opportunity to meet leading scientists from all over the world providing their contribution on various aspects and applications of this long tradition and fascinating area of research in the informal and stimulating atmosphere of this venue on the Lungomare of Napoli.

We look forward to welcoming you to Napoli for this scientific event and wish you a pleasant stay.

10–12 November 2023 The 16th National Annual Conference on Marine Drugs

Hangzhou, China

"Blue Pharmacy" refers to medicinal resources nurtured in the ocean. The development and utilization of marine medicinal resources, the investigation and discovery of marine drugs and biological products have increasingly played a prominent role in promoting the transformation and upgrading of the marine industry, enhancing marine scientific and technological innovation, occupying strategic heights in the marine economy, and building a maritime power. Accelerating the high-quality development of the "Blue Pharmacy" is our shared dream. The Zhejiang Province has abundant marine resources and superior strategic location. The "14th Five-Year Plan" for the development of Zhejiang's marine economy proposes to focus on marine life and health, strengthen the status of Hangzhou as a leading center for life and health innovation, develop gathering areas for high-end medical equipment, instruments, and health care services, and form a science and technology innovation ecosystem for the biomedical industry.

After full deliberation, "The 16th Annual Conference on Marine Drugs", sponsored by the Marine Drugs Professional Committee of the Chinese Pharmaceutical Association, will be held in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province from 10th to 12th November 2023. The conference will invite a group of well-known scholars from home and abroad to attend the event and give invited reports or conference reports on the research trends and latest achievements in related fields such as marine medicinal biological resource research, new technologies and methods for the research of marine natural products, biosynthesis and chemical synthesis research of marine drug leading compounds, marine candidate drugs and novel drug research, and marine biological functional products. At the same time, the "Young Scholars Forum on Marine Drugs " will be set up to promote academic exchanges and thinking collision among young scholars in the field of marine drugs, create opportunities for cooperation, and promote interdisciplinary integration.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hangzhou for this scientific event and wish you a pleasant stay!
