Fully booked: 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


Introduction
If you wish to add your name to the waiting list for this event please email events@rsc.org with 'ISMSC waiting list' in the subject line.

We are currently receiving a high volume of enquiries regarding the waiting list. If you wish to discuss your place on the waiting list, in order to process your enquiry more efficiently please email rather than telephone. We thank you for your patience.


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.

Special Issue of Supramolecular Chemistry for ISMSC-12

As in previous years, a special double issue of Supramolecular Chemistry will be produced in conjunction with the ISMSC. We would like to invite you to contribute an original research paper or a review article for inclusion in the special double issue of Supramolecular Chemistry for ISMSC-12.  Papers can detail the work you or your group members present at ISMSC-12 or on a different topic at your discretion. The due date for submissions will be 31 August 2017.
 
Editors: Deanna D’Alessandro & Ognjen Miljanic

For more information, please see the web pages which contain information about the journal, the instructions for authors, and the manuscript submission page.​

Themes

Topics will include, but not be limited to:
  • Sensing and Measurement
  • Dynamic Adaptation
  • Confinement
  • Catalysis
  • Interfacing with Biology
  • Working with Light
  • Topology
The conference will also offer contributed oral slots and 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 Sessions

Odd numbered posters will be on display from Sunday 2 July until lunchtime on Tuesday 4 July
Even numbered posters will be on display from the afternoon of Tuesday 4 July until the end of the conference.

You can find your poster number on the PDF, please scroll to the top of the introduction section to find it.
If you were offered a place from the waiting list and registered after 12 June your poster number will be given to you when you register on site.
