ISACS19: Challenges in Organic Chemistry – deadline extended

Submit an oral abstract by 22 November

We are excited to announce that the deadline for oral abstract submission for Challenges in Organic Chemistry (ISACS19) has been extended to 22 November.

Join Chemical Science Associate Editor Vy Dong and an excellent line-up of invited speakers at University of California, Irvine, USA from 20–23 March to discuss challenges in organic chemistry, from catalysis, proteins, sugars and total synthesis to theory and mechanisms.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Ashraf Brik, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Israel
  • Seth Herzon, Yale University, United States
  • Kami Hull, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, United States
  • James Nowick, University of California, Irvine, United States
  • RB Sunoj, IIT, Mumbai, India
  • Jin-Quan Yu, Scripps University, United States
  • Darren Dixon, University of Oxford, United Kingdom
  • Ning Jiao, Peking University, China
  • Nicola Pohl, Indiana University, United States
