9–10 March 2004, Gainesville, Florida, USA
Continuing a highly successful series, the 5th Florida Heterocyclic Conference will be held 7–10 March 2004. The conference will open with a Welcome Mixer on the evening of Sunday 7 March. On 8 March, delegates will have three options: (i) Professors Dan Comins and Alan Katritzky will give a six hour overview of heterocyclic chemistry, providing an opportunity for chemists who are not familiar with all its aspects to gain an insight into the fundamental concepts underlying the subject; (ii) oral presentations on a wide variety of heterocyclic topics; (iii) a half-day hands-on practical workshop entitled “Microwaves Applied to Preparative Organic Chemistry.” A poster session combined with a buffet supper will follow that evening. On 9 and 10 March, Tuesday and Wednesday, 12 experts from academia and industry will present plenary lectures with results from their latest research.
Organic and medicinal chemists of Ph.D. or M.Sc. level, particularly those with industrial experience, as well as industrial chemists from the pharmaceutical, biotech, agrochemical, colorants, flavors and fragrances, and chemical industries are encouraged to attend. Attendees will have the opportunity to present a poster or to make an oral contribution at this meeting, if arranged in advance.
Registration includes all conference sessions; buffet supper and wine at the mixer on 7 March and at the poster section on 8 March; lunches and refreshments on 8, 9, and 10 March; and a copy of the conference manual with notes on the lectures and the heterocyclic course.
The 5th Florida Heterocyclic Conference will follow a conference on “Microwave Applications to Chemistry” organized by CEM Corporation (“Innovators in Microwave Technology”). A reduced rate is available for attendees at both conferences.
