6th European Symposium on Organic Reactivity
All details on
 (!case sensitive)

Louvain-la-Neuve 24 - 29 July 1997

The Catholic University of Louvain, located in the Belgian city of Louvain
la Neuve, will host the next conference entitled "European
Symposium on Organic Reactivity". This will be the sixth edition of a
series of successful meetings held in Paris (1987), Padova (1989),
Göteborg (1991), Newcastle-upon-Tyne (1993) and Santiago de Compostela

Louvain-la-Neuve is located about 30 km south of Brussels in the
french-speaking part of Belgium.
The Conference site will be part of the academic facilities of the Catholic
University of Louvain (U.C.L.).

Scientific Programme
The meeting will be devoted to all aspects of physical organic chemistry.
The conference programme will focus on three main topics :
1. Mechanisms and reactivity in organic, bioorganic and organometallic
chemistry, including theoretical approaches
2. Photochemical and electron transfer activation processes
3. Molecular recognition and enzyme mechanism.

The programme will include 12 plenary lectures, two parallel sessions with
their own invited lectures. A limited number of oral
presentations will be selected among the submitted contributions.
Two separate poster sessions are planned on Friday afternoon and Monday
afternoon with comfortable discussion times.
The Journal of Physical Organic Chemistry will devote an issue to the
publication of proceedings of the Symposium. Active participants are
invited to submit their communications as short papers (4 pages in the
Journal) to be included in this issue. Manuscripts (~10 pages) should be
typed double-spaced; an original and three copies, each one accompanied by
artwork should be supplied. They will be collected during the symposium and
will be evaluated by reviewers.

Plenary lectures

following topics :
