ICOS-20, 20th International Conference on Organic Synthesis
Friday, 20 October 2017
Exhibition & sponsorship


Online registration for the exhibition, advertisement and sponsorship

The International Conferences on Organic Synthesis (ICOS) have been organised  around the world since 1976 under IUPAC sponsorship, which reflects the growth and development of organic synthesis in response to new research challenges. Each year IUPAC sponsors a large number of independently organised symposia that cover a wide range of specialised topics in chemistry. Sponsorship by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country's assurance that scientists from all countries may participate.

ICOS-20 will create an aspiring forum where scientific and industrial contributions of organic synthesis will be presented. Following a great series of successful Conferences, we hope that our event will also continue the tradition, by collecting excellent scientists, organizing interesting scientific program with illustration of the most significant aspects and achievements of organic chemistry and, last but not least, offering attractive social programs to enjoy the hospitality and the beauties of our historic capital.

The conference counts on a balanced participation between academia and industry, encouraging attendants from around the world and supporting the international appeal of the ICOS conference series. The conference will accordingly be prepared to entertain an international audience, 500-700 participants expected.
