IASOC 2024

Ischia Advanced School of Organic Chemistry, (Ischia),
September 19-23, 2024


We are pleased to announce that the 20th edition of the Ischia Advanced School of Organic Chemistry (IASOC) will be held at the Hotel Continental, Ischia (www.hotelcontinentalischia.it/), Ischia, September 19-23, 2024.

Since 1984, the IASOC is organized every two years by the University of Naples Federico II, Department of Chemical Sciences, under the aegis of the Società Chimica Italiana (www.soc.chim.it/en), Divisione di Chimica Organica (www.soc.chim.it/it/divisioni/organica/home).

The aim of the IASOC is to bring together leading scientists of the highest international repute to provide an overview of the latest advances in the various areas of Organic Chemistry, with a special emphasis on synthesis and its multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary implications. Invited lecturers at IASOC are expected to provide highly stimulating lessons at advanced level in their own field of research, and to closely interact with the attendees on the occasion of platform discussions, tutorials, poster sessions and informal meetings. In furtherance of its commitment to the highest levels of education, the IASOC is mainly directed to last year PhD students, post-docs and senior scientists or industry-oriented researchers who wish to be updated about enabling procedures and new tools at the cutting-edge of organic synthesis at the crossroads of biology, medicine and technology. Speakers at IASOC are usually urged to provide a selection of their slides in advance for distribution in the conference room just prior to their lesson. Due to the intimate mix of basic and applied research, the scientific program of the IASOC is specifically designed to attract people from both research institutions and companies.

The main focus of IASOC 2024 will be on “Organic Synthesis: the Best is Yet to Come”. This theme collects the most efficient strategies, the main targets currently pursued in the fields of life sciences and materials technology, new approaches to smart molecules and functional systems. Topics will be illustrated and debated in a lively and informal atmosphere over a three-day compact format with ample space reserved to catalysis, supramolecular chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, (nano)technology-oriented synthesis and molecular design. As in the past editions, the scientific programme of IASOC 2024 will consist of lessons, delivered by scientists from both academia and industry, tutorials, poster sessions, workshops and open sessions. Presenting authors of selected poster communications will be invited to illustrate their results in flash communications during specific sessions aimed at favoring interaction between young researchers and leading scientists. 

We believe that the international flavor of the school will provide the best conditions for a full immersion in an exciting and stimulating journey at the frontiers of organic chemistry with the unique beauty of the venue in the “green island”. We look forward to welcoming you in Ischia in September 2024!
