The International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry
The 10th International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (10th-ISMSC 2015) will cover all aspects of macrocyclic and supramolecular chemistry from different and interdisciplinary point of views across disciplines such as chemistry, material sciences, nanosciences and biology.
Topics of the plenary, invited and selected speakers will include assemblies and complexity, catalysis, crystal engineering, supramolecular polymers and materials, molecular devices and machines, noncovalent interaction patterns and applications, supramolecules for biological and biomedical applications.
The 10th-ISMSC 2015 will also offer the possibility to students and researchers at their early-stage career to present their scientific work in form of short oral presentation and poster.
Brief history of the ISMSC
The ISMSC was born out of two earlier series of meetings, the International Symposium on Macrocyclic Chemistry (ISMC) and the International Symposium on Supramolecular Chemistry (ISSC).
The ISMC series began in 1977, in Provo, Utah. It was founded by Reed M. Izatt and James J. Christensen. The ISSC series began in 1980, in Warsaw, Poland and was run every other year from then onwards. In 2006, the two meetings joined for a combined conference in Victoria, Canada.
After this initial joint venture, the two meetings have been held together each year under the International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (ISMSC) heading, in a different nation each time.
