Description

The BOSS-conference is a unique international symposium as it combines 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.

Prof. Alois Fürstner (Max Planck Institute 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. One of the major aims of the BOSS symposia has always been to give young chemists the possibility to attend a high level conference at a reasonable cost, instead of only addressing a small group of highly specialized chemists.

The BOSS XIV Symposium Programme will include:

  • a one-day course by the recipient of the 2014 Tetrahedron Chair, Prof. John F. Hartwig (UC Berkeley, USA)
  • a lecture delivered by the recipient of the 2014 Janssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
  • a series of 17 plenary lectures with ample time for discussion
  • poster sessions
  • an exhibition of scientific instruments, books and chemicals
  • social activities

The official symposium language is English. Online registration and abstract submission will be available starting from mid-December 2013.

Exhibits included

BOSS XIV is expected to attract about 550 – 600 participants from around the world with a majority of scientists coming from Europe. The audience is typically composed of organic chemists, synthetic chemists, scientists involved in chemical and biological catalysis, asymmetric synthesis, natural products, biologically active compounds, medicinal chemistry, materials science, chemical development, pharmaceutical chemistry and agrochemistry - with a high percentage of students. For companies operating in the field of Organic Chemistry, the BOSS symposium represents an excellent opportunity to promote the quality of their scientific activities and products among the highly targeted audience. The exhibition will form an integral part of the symposium and will be located close to the conference room.
