It is a great pleasure to invite you to take part in the Fifth edition (already…) of the International Symposium on Synthesis and Catalysis 2023 (ISySyCat2023) taking place at the University of Evora in the historically recognized mediaeval city of Evora from 5th of September to 8th of September 2023. The city of Evora besides its striking beauty, uniqueness and hospitality is steeped in history having been the home to the Romans, the Moors, Visigoth's and others, including kings of Portugal. It has a coveted UNESCO world heritage stamp, and this walled city is the location of a Roman temple, and several palaces and exotic cathedrals. The conference will take place in the original part of the University known as Colégio Espirito Santo which dates back to the 16th Century.
The conference will focus on key topics in contemporary organic, organometallic, polymer synthesis and catalysis, which are of relevance to both academic and industrial chemists alike. This is reflected in the topics that will be discussed in the plenary lectures. Generally speaking, ISySyCat focuses strongly on chemical synthesis with catalysis as one of the key enablers. Like always, we anticipate a good mix of participants from academia and industry. This is reflected in the list of plenary speakers that hail from both academia and industry from all over the world. We are eagerly looking forward to seeing you in Evora in September 2023.
