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.
Prof. E. M. CARREIRA (ETH ZÃ¼rich, ZÃ¼rich, Switzerland) has accepted to be chairman of BOSS XIII scheduled to take place in Leuven (Belgium), July 15-20, 2012, and hosted by Prof E. VAN DER EYCKEN (KUL, Heverlee, Belgium).
The conference covers a broad range of timely subjects in the field of organic chemistry. 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 lecture delivered by the recipient of the Janssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis
- A series of 16 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.
