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  (1995).

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.

Twelve well-known scientists hace agreed to give Plenary Lectures on the following topics :

V. Balzani,University of Bologna, Italy,
	Supramolecular photochemistry.
