14th Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium - BOSS XIV

13 Jul 2014 - 18 Jul 2014 - Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

Prof. Alois Fürstner (Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung, Germany) has kindly accepted to be chairman of BOSS XIV, which will take place in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), from July 13 to 18, and hosted by Prof. Olivier Riant (UCL, Belgium).

The conference will cover a broad range of timely subjects in the field of organic chemistry. The scientific programme will combine lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars with two prestigious events: a lecture delivered by the recipient of the “Janssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis”, and the “Tetrahedron Chair”: a one-day course on a specific topic in organic synthesis. The programme will be completed by a large poster session as well as by a commercial exhibition. The list of confirmed speakers is available on the symposium website. Online registration will open in January 2014.
