  • 12th National Organic Chemistry Meeting (12ENQO) and the 5th National Medicinal Chemistry Meeting (5ENQT)

    January 17-19, 2018   Coimbra, Portugal

    In January, 2018, the 12th National Organic Chemistry Meeting (12ENQO) and the 5th National Medicinal Chemistry Meeting (5ENQT) will be taking place in Coimbra, Portugal. The Divisions of Organic Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ) will be responsible for the organization of this scientific meeting.

    As in the previous edition of the Meeting, by bringing together, in a single event, authorities of these two important and complementary areas, new synergies are expected to arise. The interdisciplinary nature of this meeting will be reflected in an attractive program comprising Plenary Sessions, Invited Communications, Oral Communications and Poster Communications that will surely attract the interest of a vast audience. There will be plenty of time for casual discussions and exchanges of ideas among the participants.

    Coimbra is a beautiful historical city in the center of Portugal. UNESCO has granted the World Cultural Heritage label to the historical center of this city. In Coimbra, we can find one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Europe, whose students bring life and multiculturalism to the city. It is filled with amazing places, magnificent monuments and many unique traditions. Coimbra is easy to reach from both Lisbon and Porto international airports, by train and bus.

    The deadline for the reception of abstracts & Early-bird registration is the 15th November 2017.
