The organizers of the 19th International Symposium on Olefin Metathesis and Related Chemistry (ISOM XIX) have been busy putting together what looks to be an excellent program for the July 10 – 15, 2011 event taking place in Rennes, Bretagne, France.
An ISOM conference is held every two years in varied locations across the world to cover the latest developments in olefin metathesis. The series of ISOM meetings have played an important role in the progress of metathesis and provided an opportunity for major scientists and industrial leaders involved in this rapidly developing field to meet on a regular basis.
This year’s program is scheduled to feature Nobel Laureates Robert Grubbs and Richard Schrock and many other noted contributors in the field of metathesis. In addition to program information, the ISOM XIX site has details on registration, accommodations and contributions for an oral or a poster presentation.
A key objective of ISOM XIX is to give young scientists, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, the opportunity to present their results and meet the leaders of this fascinating field of chemistry. So start making your plans to attend and be a part of this important metathesis event!
