14th Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium
Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium - July 13-18, 2014
The BOSS-conference is a unique international symposium as it combines lectures delivered by established organic chemists as well as younger rising stars with two prestigious events: a lecture delivered by the recipient of the “Janssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis”, and the “Tetrahedron Chair”: a one-day course on a specific topic in organic synthesis.
Prof. Alois Fürstner (Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung, Germany) has kindly accepted to be chairman of BOSS XIV, which will take place in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), from July 13 to 18, and hosted by Prof. Olivier Riant (UCL, Belgium).
The conference will cover a broad range of timely subjects in the field of organic chemistry. One of the major aims of the BOSS symposia has always been to give young chemists the possibility to attend a high level conference at a reasonable cost, instead of only addressing a small group of highly specialised chemists.
The BOSS XIV Symposium Programme will include:
a one-day course by the recipient of the 2014 Tetrahedron Chair, Prof. John F. Hartwig (UC Berkeley, USA)
a lecture delivered by the recipient of the 2014 Janssen Pharmaceutica Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis, Prof. John F. Hartwig (UC Berkeley, USA)
a series of 17 plenary lectures with ample time for discussion
an exhibition of scientific instruments, books and chemicals
The official symposium language is English.
