11–15 September 2011, Niagara Falls, Canada
The IME Boron XIV Conference will be held 11-15 September 2011 in Niagara Falls, Canada and promises to continue the tradition of inspiring collaboration and discussion expected of the IME Boron meetings. This year our focus is on emerging areas of boron chemistry including recent advances in organic synthesis, inorganic chemistry, material science, and medicinal chemistry. We are assembling a scientific program that will foster new relationships and opportunities for those in the early stages of their career and that is designed to attract talented young scientists to work in this exciting field. We are also committed to recognizing the significant contributions of established leaders in the field and we believe strongly that all boron chemists will benefit immensely from attendance at the conference. The program will be divided into three sections: organic, inorganic, and medicinal chemistry, with one plenary lecture for each section as well as several invited speakers during two parallel sessions over four days. We invite applications for the Young Boron Chemist Award as well as oral and poster contributons from researchers who would like to present their accomplishments. The venue for the meeting will be the new Scotiabank Convention Centre, a mere 500 metres from the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. September in Niagara Falls is a particularly beautiful time of year; the location is a world-class destination with unmatched scenery, award-winning cuisine and innumerable entertainment options.
