27 June–1 July 2004, Sheffield, UK
The 7th International Symposium on Biomolecular Chemistry will continue the tradition of a successful biennial symposium on bioorganic chemistry. Most recently, conferences within the series were held in Toronto, Canada (2002, ISBOC 6), and in Pune, India (2000, ISBOC 5). The symposia focus on the advancement of international collaboration and communication at the interface of organic chemistry and biological and medicinal science.
ISBOC 7 will be held in the Octagon Centre at Sheffield University, a venue seating up to 1000 individuals. There will be six afternoon symposia, arranged in parallel sessions: bio-organic chemistry, proteins and peptides, structure and mechanism, bio-inorganic chemistry, biospectroscopy, and biothermodynamics. Contributed lectures (of 15 minutes) are invited, and abstracts should submitted as soon as possible. There will be full poster sessions, with a closing date for all abstracts of 31 March 2004.
Plenary speakers include Stephen Benkovic (Penn State), Steven Lippard (MIT), Manfred Reetz (MPI Mülheim), Carol Robinson (Cambridge), Dieter Seebach (ETH Zürich), Kazunari Taira (Tokyo), and George Whitesides (Harvard). There also will be a number of invited lecturers.
