ISOS 2018

XLIII “A. Corbella” International Summer School on Organic Synthesis

 

 

The “A. Corbella” School on Organic Synthesis has a long tradition, which dates back to 1976. Named after its cofounder Attilio Corbella, who died prematurely in 1978, the School is sponsored by the Division of Organic Chemistry of the Italian Chemical Society (SCI) and organized under the direction of the Department of Chemistry of the Università degli Studi di Milano, every year in June in Gargnano, a small village on Garda Lake.

Since its foundation, the School has been held in “Palazzo Feltrinelli”, a XIX century villa overlooking the lake which belongs to the Università degli Studi di Milano and is equipped with teaching facilities for up to 150 participants. A free bus service to Gargnano will be organized, with stops at Milano railway central station, Milano Linate airport, Milano-Bergamo Orio al Serio airport.

The School is mainly directed to Ph.D. students and young researchers coming both from University and Industry. It normally attracts close to 100 students, including the best graduate students from all the main Italian and European Universities.  The lectures span all synthetic aspects of modern Organic Chemistry and focus on both established and emerging areas of research at the cutting-edge oforganic chemistry and related areas, such as analytical chemistry, materials, innovative enabling technologies.

The scientific program of ISOS 2018 will consist of lessons delivered by acclaimed scientists from academia and industry, poster sessions, oral communications and several informal meetings among the attendees and the speakers throughout the five-day schedule. Aim of the school is to create a friendly environment and provide the opportunity to young scientists, post-docs and PhD students to meet leading scientists of high international repute in a very relaxed and informal atmosphere.

AIM 2018 – Advanced Inorganic Materials: Green and Unconventional Synthesis Approaches and Functional Assessment

AIM 2018 will be held in Room A “Nasini” of the Department of Chemical Sciences of the University of Padova (Padua, Italy) from 5th to 7th September 2018.

This Workshop intends to present to students and experienced researchers the main features and potentialities of unconventional and/or green synthesis approaches for the preparation of advanced inorganic materials. Focus will be also devoted to the assessment of the functional properties of this class of materials.
The presentations will mainly have an introductory and didactical scope, and will be prevalently conceived with in mind an audience of Ph.D. students and researchers who do not yet employ these methods, but are interested in discovering the potential and research outlooks they can unlock.
