21–23 February 2018 Chemistry Conference for Young Scientists 2018

Blankenberge, Belgium

Our conference gives young attendees the opportunity to present early results of their research. Topics are focussed on the typical research domains in chemistry. The best oral and poster presentation of each session will be awarded.

Plenary keynote lectures by world-renowned scientists are scheduled as well. 2016 Nobel prize laureate Prof. Dr Ben Feringa (University of Groningen) will give a lecture on molecular machines. Prof. Dr Sir Martyn Poliakoff (University of Nottingham) will engage you his talk focussing on green chemistry with respect to the environment and 2009 Nobel prize laureate Ada Yonath (Weizmann Institute of Science) will give a lecture on the discovery of the structure of ribosomes.

In parallel, six seminars focussing on soft skills will prepare the participants on life after graduation. We will focus on "Tech Transfer: from PhD research to spin-off", "Intellectual Propperty for scientists", "Data Management", "How to improve your C.V.", "Managing your online profile and get your professional head shot" and "Digital Lab Notes".

Last but not least, ChemCYS features KaféCV, our entrance level networking event where participants get to know various companies and their recruitment policies. Unlike traditional job events, KaféCV focusses on career development rather than existing vacancies.

13–15 September 2010 Dalton Discussion 12: Catalytic C-H and C-X Bond Activation (DD12)

Durham University, UK


Applications of late metal catalysed cross-coupling reactions, involving activation of C-X and C-H bonds (X = halogen), are common place in the synthesis of natural products, therapeutic agents, biological probes, and advanced materials.
Cross-coupling reactions can be simplified by removing the need for reactant prefunctionalisation, although historically this has been difficult to achieve selectively. The organometallic chemistry community has worked on this problem for many years (mainly from a mechanistic perspective), with important advances being made. Very recently (over the last five years or so) the organic community has begun to explore the opportunities for this chemistry in terms of synthetic applications. The synthetic community has recently been alerted to emerging, alternative technologies, and it is now clear that C-H functionalisation processes are set to transform modern synthetic chemistry, in some cases eliminating the need for substrate activation protocols.


The meeting will highlight the importance of catalytic bond activation in cross-coupling chemistry. The latest research will be presented and discussed.
Key topics that will be covered in the discussion meeting include:

  • Synthetic chemistry (including applications)
  • Inorganic and Organometallic chemistry
  • Reaction mechanism (physical organic and organometallic chemistry)
  • Transition metal catalysis
  • Applications of C-H and C-X bond activation in organic synthesis

Who should attend?

DD12 will bring together the organic, organometallic, and inorganic (coordination chemistry) communities from academia and industry to discuss the current state of the art, the development and future of late metal-catalysed cross-coupling strategies of C-X and C-H bonds.

4–8 September 2011 14th Conference on Heterocycles in Bio-organic Chemistry

Brno, Czech Republic

Dear colleagues,

It is my great honour and pleasure to invite you to the XIVth Conference on Heterocycles in Bio-organic Chemistry, which will be held on September 4 – 8, 2011, at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. The conference is a continuation of the international series started by Professor Henk van der Plas in 1980.

Bio-organic chemistry has been a dynamic research field; we have witnessed significant expansion of its boundaries during the last few years and we feel it is time to learn about the latest progress in the field. Therefore, our Department took the opportunity to organize the XIVth Conference. Our goal is to create a pleasant and friendly atmosphere in order to facilitate fruitful interaction of young scientists with internationally recognized speakers who were chosen with the help of the members of the Scientific Committee.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Brno - city of science and music, personified by Johann Gregor Mendel and Leoš Janáček.

Milan Potáček
Chairman of the Organizing Committee
Department of Chemistry, Masaryk University, Brno, and

The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC), the Medicinal Chemistry Section of the Austrian Chemical Society (GÖCH) and ChemBridge Corporation will be jointly organising the 7th edition of the EFMC International Symposium on Advances in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ASMC’17). This event is planned in the series which started in Moscow in 2004 (ASCMC'04 and ASMC'13), followed by St. Peterburg (ASMC'07 and ASMC'11), Kiev (ASMC'09) and the latest one in Rehovot, Israel (ASMC'15).

This symposium will bring together chemists from industry, academia and start-up companies from around the world and is focused on the most recent advances in new synthetic methodologies, total synthesis, fluorination approaches, bioisosteres and building blocks, chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, drug discovery and development leading to new or improved methods for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals.

Beyond key lectures in synthetic and fluorination chemistry, as well as recent case studies in medicinal chemistry and drug discovery, the symposium aims at bridging the range from ‘small molecules’ to ‘large molecules’ including carbohydrates, natural products, novel protein scaffolds and genes; it is expected to attract experts in synthetic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, total synthesis, catalysis, drug discovery, molecular imaging, and chemical development.

The general concept of the meeting, with talks equally selected from industry and academia, will include an opening lecture, 26 invited lectures, 10 short communications selected from submitted abstracts and a large poster session and commercial exhibition. The organisers are very happy to announce that the symposium will be chaired by:

Karin BRINER (Novartis, United States)

30 August–2 September 2017 17th Blue Danube Symposium on Heterocyclic Chemistry

Linz, Austria

The 17th Blue Danube Symposium on Heterocyclic Chemistry will take place at the Johannes Kepler University of Linz, Austria from August 30 until September 2 in 2017.

Following the long tradition of Blue Danube Symposia which started in 1991 as a regional meeting of chemists from Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovak Republic, and Austria and later also Slovenia, these symposia have soon become an international meeting series attracting participants from all over the world. In 2017 the meeting will return to Austria, being held at the University of Linz. The campus is within short distance to the Blue Danube itself with numerous possibilities to relax and recharge in between an exciting scientific program that will cover all aspects of heterocyclic chemistry. Besides presentations from well-reputed plenary speakers we will also have talks from local representatives of the society countries (Blue Danube Speakers) and short oral presentations of young talents in the field. In addition to an exciting scientific program, we also plan an accompanying exhibition of different companies and suppliers related to field.
