The long tradition of workshops previously held since 2004 in Kaiserslautern, Bonn, Leipzig, Zandvoort, Regensburg, Florence, Budapest, Münster, Rennes, Regensburg, Sofia, Kassel, Berlin, Cluj-Napoca, Uppsala and Bristol will be continued with the 17th European Workshop on Phosphorus Chemistry in Rennes, France. This workshop series has a strong reputation for fruitful exchanges of ideas, opinions and excellent discussions. The aspects of phosphorus chemistry covered by this workshop span organic, inorganic, polymers, materials chemistry, and biological chemistry.
Our plenary speaker will be Pr. S. Yamaguchi (Nagoya University, Japan, http://orgreact.chem.nagoya-u.ac.jp/olddocs/en/Home.html). The workshop gives early-stage researchers the opportunity to communicate their work to the leading European research groups in phosphorus chemistry. The program will include oral contributions from Ph.D. students (15 + 5 min, 1 presentation per research group) and poster sessions (no limitations). Students will also chair the sessions of oral contributions. Prizes for best oral contributions, posters, and chairs will be awarded.
