French American Chemical Society Symposium

 Date | 2-6 June 2024

 Location | Paris

 Website | https://facs2024.sciencesconf.org/


The French American Chemical Society (FACS) is a completely volunteer, non-profit organization that was informally established in 1986 by Pr. E. J. Corey (Harvard University Professor and Nobel Prize recipient) and the late Dr. Pierre Potier (Director of the Institute of Natural Products Chemistry, ICSN, in Gif-sur-Yvette, France) to promote organic chemistry in its broadest sense and also the scientific interactions between France, United States and Canada. FACS conferences present recent advances in organic synthesis which are of keen interest to academic and industry-based researchers. Our biennial conferences alternate between well-chosen sites in France and the USA.
For the 19th edition of FACS, 18 French and 18 American and Canadian speakers are invited to share with the public the latest developments in their research into organic synthesis in the broadest sense. We intend to cover catalytic and/or asymmetric synthesis, total synthesis of natural products, organometallic chemistry, new modes of chemical activation, medicinal chemistry, agrochemistry and process research. Particular attention was paid to balancing the program between well-established participants and young associate professors and industrial chemists. In addition, we have opened the Symposium to PhD students at special rates.

Groupe d’Études en Chimie Organique (GECO64)

 Date | 25-30 august 2024

 Location | Cap d'Agde

 Website | https://geco64.sciencesconf.org/


Ce colloque annuel est d’envergure internationale, tout en favorisant l’expression en langue française. Il rassemble chaque année, pendant une semaine et sur un même site, entre 50 et 80 chimistes professionnels (académiques et industriels, français et étrangers) autour d’une douzaine de conférenci.ères invités prestigieux. Ces hôtes invités présentent leurs travaux les plus marquants lors d’une conférence d’environ une heure. Les participant.es inscrit.es, pour leur part, exposent en 15 minutes leurs travaux les plus récents lors de communications orales. Les thèmes abordés au cours du GECO sont très variés et allient la recherche fondamentale et ses applications en réponse aux défis sociétaux (santé, nutrition, énergie, environnement). Ils incluent systématiquement la synthèse de molécules naturelles et d’analogues, la catalyse, l’étude de nouvelles réactions chimiques et de nouvelles approches technologiques, l’étude de nouveaux modes d’interactions à l’échelle moléculaire et supramoléculaire, l’application de la chimie organique à la biologie, au développement de nouveaux matériaux et à l’énergie. Le concept de développement durable est également une constante des travaux qui sont présentés. En parallèle de ces échanges scientifiques intenses, un temps significatif est réservé à des activités extérieures permettant d'établir des contacts, souvent à l’origine de futures collaborations entre les participant(e)s.


Regio Symposium 2025

 Date | august 2025

 Location | yet to be announced

 Website | https://regiosymposium.unistra.fr


The REGIO symposium is an organic and bioorganic chemistry symposium organized annually since 1981, jointly by the Universities of Basel (Switzerland), Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany), the Université de Haute-Alsace and the Université de Strasbourg (France). This symposium is a unique opportunity for the chemistry departments of these four universities to meet and is aimed in particular at doctoral students and permanent staff of the university institutes, as well as researchers from REGIO area chemical companies working in the field of Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry. Each REGIO symposium features four speakers, three of whom present two lectures. This unusual format is particularly stimulating, as it allows for thematic diversity and the creativity of the speakers. The fourth speaker is chosen for his international reputation as a chemist and the relevance of his work throughout his career. This "perspective" lecture is always very lively and particularly enriching for the youngest participants. We are also planning to feature three talented young academics (one from each country), as well as a talk by an industrial colleague from the upper Rhine region.
