The BOSS-conference is a unique international symposium as, apart from invited lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars, two prestigious events are associated with it: a lecture delivered by the recipient of the â€œJanssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesisâ€, and the â€œTetrahedron Chairâ€: a one-day course on a specific topic in organic synthesis by an eminent lecturer. The conference covers a broad range of timely subjects in the field of organic chemistry.
Prof. Manfred T. Reetz (Max Planck, MULHEIM / Ruhr, Germany), has accepted to be chairman of BOSS XII scheduled to take place in Namur (Belgium), July 11-16, 2010, hosted by Prof. StÃ©phane Vincent (FUNDP Namur, Belgium).
One of the major aims of this series of events, also for this new edition, has always been to give young chemists the possibility to attend a high level conference at a reasonable cost, covering a broad range of timely subjects in the field of organic chemistry instead of only addressing a small group of highly specialized chemists.
The symposium programme will include:
- A one-day course on a specific topic by the recipient of the Tetrahedron Chair
- A series of 16 plenary lectures with ample time for discussion
- A lecture delivered by the recipient of the Janssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
- Poster sessions
- An exhibition of scientific instruments, books and chemicals
- Social activities
The official symposium language is English.
Call for nominations
The Janssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis is awarded on a biannual basis, on the occasion of the BOSS, to a chemist under the age of 50 who has made a significant contribution to the field of organic synthesis in the broadest sense.
The Prize consists of a trophy, a citation, and â‚¬20.000. The laureate of the Prize is expected to deliver a lecture at the BOSS XII.
All details for the submission of a nomination are available via the symposium website: www.BOSS12.org
Deadline for nominations: December 31, 2009
