International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (ISMSC) in conjunction with ISACS: Challenges in Organic Materials & Supramolecular Chemistry
2 - 6 July 2017, Cambridge, United Kingdom
10 - 13 April 2017, Manchester, United Kingdom
The 12th International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry will be run in 2017 in conjunction with the Royal Society of Chemistry's biennial ISACS: Challenges in Organic Materials & Supramolecular Chemistry meeting and will take place in Cambridge. The conference themes will spread the breadth of macrocyclic and supramolecular chemistry.
Topics will include, but not be limited to:
- Sensing and Measurement
- Dynamic Adaptation
- Interfacing with Biology
- Working with Light
Abstract submission is now open in order to allow the application for a contributed talking slot at the conference. The conference will also offer the possibility for to students and researchers at their early-stage career to present their scientific work in form of poster presentations. There will be a conference dinner, which we hope to be at one of the Cambridge Colleges and there will be a free afternoon for delegates to enjoy the attractions and sights of Cambridge.
ISMSC, the International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry, in turn came from a fusion of the International Symposium on Macrocyclic Chemistry (ISMC) and the International Symposium on Supramolecular Chemistry (ISSC). These meetings combined in 2006 and since then have been held on an annual basis in a different nation each time.
This conference is also being held in conjuction with the RSC Macrocycles and Supramolecular Chemistry (MASC) group meeting.
Poster Submission is due to open shortly.
Submit your poster abstract by 24 April 2017. Posters are displayed throughout the meeting with scheduled poster sessions on two evenings during the conference. A Poster Prize will be awarded to the best poster presented at the conference.
Authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process within about 6 weeks of the submission deadline. The abstracts should be no longer than one A4 page in portrait layout and should use the template provided. Please ensure you provide the details of the presenting author and indicate which type of presentation you are submitting your abstract for.
Travel grants are available for PhD students, postdocs within 10 years of completing their PhD and early career scientists within 10 years of leaving full time education. There are also a number of non-competitive travel grants available. See the bursaries section for more details.
