15–30 November 2022 The 26th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry


Dear Colleagues,

The Electronic Conferences on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences that have been held online since 1997. Originally, it was an initiative of MDPI, and was later amalgamated with the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). It now constitutes the longest running electronic conference in the world. It maintains free participation and registration in the true spirit of open access on the World Wide Web. This year, the conference will cover a wide range of aspects involved in synthetic organic chemistry. A non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered comprises:

  1. General Organic Synthesis;
  2. Bioorganic, Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry;
  3. Microwave-Assisted Synthesis;
  4. Polymer and Supramolecular Chemistry;
  5. Computational Chemistry.

ECSOC-26 offers you the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without the need to travel. It will be completely free of charge—both to attend, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. There will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 4.412 (2020); 5-Year Impact Factor: 4.588 (2020)).

Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 30 September 2022 at Once this has been accepted, the author is requested to send the full manuscript, and optionally, a PowerPoint presentation (PDF only) and/or video of their work, before 23 October 2022, to ensure there is time for a final check.

The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available on for discussion and will be published in the Journal Chemistry Proceedings for free. Once the conference is over, a CD-ROM (ISBN 978-3-0365-3286-8) will be published with the contents of the conference, which will be available on request ([email protected]) for 75 EUR each. 

Participants of this conference are cordially invited to contribute a full manuscript to our Special Issue of Molecules (submission to the journal is independent from the conference proceedings and will follow the usual process of the journal, including peer-review, APC, etc.). Papers presented at the conference will be granted a 20% discount for submisison to the Special Issue.

We are pleased to announce the availability of awards for researchers who plan to attend the ECSOC-26 conference. Applications and nominations will be assessed by the Scientific Committee. Winners will be announced online after the conference.

Best Contribution Award (CHF 500)

Best Contribution Award (CHF 500)

26–30 June 2022 47th National Organic Chemistry Symposium

University of California, San Diego in La Jolla, CA, USA.

The Executive Committee of the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society and the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, San Diego invite you to attend the 47th National Organic Chemistry Symposium. This biennial event will be held from Sunday, June 26 to Thursday June 30, 2022 at the University of California, San Diego in La Jolla, CA. This is the first time the event will be held in Southern California. You can find some of the latest information on the upcoming NOS on Twitter with #NOS2022. Note the event has been delayed 1 year due to the pandemic.

The next National Organic Chemistry Symposium (NOS) will be chaired by Angie R. Angeles (Gilead). The event will rely on Emmanuel Theodorakis, UCSD who will serve as the Local event chair.

Several lectures from the 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 NOS are currently available to Organic Division members. See the Organic Division’s Main web site. The program books from all previous NOS are available from the NOS History page.

10–15 July 2022 The 30th International Carbohydrate Symposium (ICS 2022)


The Brazilian organizing committee is honoured to welcome you to the 30th International Carbohydrate Symposium (ICS 2022), which will take place from July 10 to 15, 2022.

The International Carbohydrate Symposium is an important biennial forum for researchers who are involved in all aspects of carbohydrates research and has been held in various locations around the world. Previous meetings generated Special Issues of PAC that divulged the most recent findings regarding carbohydrates in health and disease, industry, and food and cosmetics, and this trend will be followed with the proposal of a Special Issue of PAC dedicated to ICS 2022. Due to the health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, ICS 2022 will be held online.

There will be four parallel sections involving seven themes: Synthesis, Glycobiology, Carbohydrate Structure and Analysis, Carbohydrate Polymer and Material Sciences, New Developments in Glycoscience, Carbohydrates for Medicine and Diagnosis, Glycoconjugates and Vaccines.

Join us!

24–26 August 2022 30th Annual GP2A Conference (Group for the Promotion of Pharmaceutical chemistry in Academia)

Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland

The Group for the Promotion of Pharmaceutical chemistry in Academia (GP2A) is a member-led network of academic medicinal chemists working in universities and research institutes in Europe.

Founded in 1992, as the Groupement des Pharmacochimistes de l’Arc Atlantique (GP2A), by medicinal chemists working within schools of pharmacy near the western coast of Europe (the “Atlantic Arc”), it has rapidly expanded and currently includes academic members from France, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

Our definition of medicinal chemistry is broad, and membership is open to those working in areas as diverse as physical and pharmaceutical chemistry and molecular pharmacology, as well as the traditional areas of natural product chemistry, pharmacognosy, and drug discovery.

Our primary aim is networking to enable exchange of ideas and experiences. This is facilitated through the following two major activities: our annual scientific conference, and Ph.D. student and post-doctoral research exchanges.

The network provides bursaries to facilitate exchange between members’ laboratories

However, in light of the current COVID-19 situation, and the uncertainty of travel possibilities in 2021, we decided to plan a new ESRR’22 meeting in Verona on 24–27 November 2022.

As mentioned earlier, the submitted and accepted abstracts for ESRR’20 will not be published; abstract submission for ESRR’22 will open in spring 2022.

We carry forward all the financial contributions and registrations to the postponed event, to guarantee that no financial loss, with regard to sponsorship/exhibition/registration fees, occurs.

Please do not hesitate to contact us immediately for any further information, any help you might need, or if you have any other questions.
