19–24 July 2009, Luxembourg, Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg
The 13th International Symposium on Novel Aromatic Compounds will be held from 19–24 July 2009 in Luxembourg City. The goal of this conference is to further elucidate the fundamental principles of synthesis and properties of novel aromatic and other interesting π-conjugated systems, to discuss recent experimental and theoretical insights into the concept of aromaticity, and to explore modern applications of such systems as advanced materials and tailor-made functional modules in supramolecular chemistry and optoelectronics. As such, the meeting is expected to encourage discussion and interaction among various communities connected to aromatic and other π-conjugated systems.
In addition to an Opening Plenary Lecture and the Nozoe Memorial Lecture, the scientific program will include invited lectures, oral communications, and a poster session. The main topics are:
- aromaticity and novel π-conjugated systems—theory and experiment
- aromatic polymers and oligomers and their optoelectronic properties
- supramolecular aromatic devices, switches, and machines
- aromatics on surfaces including graphene
- fullerenes and concave aromatics
Situated in the heart of Europe and bordered by Belgium, France, and Germany, Luxembourg is a convenient destination for business travel. The city has a cosmopolitan flair that is surprising in view of its size. Despite the political and economic developments involved in European unification, this multilingual country has maintained an atmosphere of contemplative tranquility.
