On behalf of the Organising Committee, we should like to invite you to the 17th European Symposium on Organic Reactivity (ESOR 2019). The symposium is organised by the Department of Chemistry (Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb), the Croatian Chemical Society, and in cooperation with Inter-University Centre Dubrovnik.

The meeting will be held in the beautiful Croatian city of Dubrovnik on the Adriatic coast between 8 and 13 September 2019.

The ESOR series has a long and proud history, with meetings being held in Paris (1987), Padova, Italy (1989), Göteborg, Sweden (1991), Newcastle, UK (1993), Santiago de Compostela, Spain (1995), Louvain la Neuve, Belgium (1997), Ulm, Germany (1999), Cavtat (Dubrovnik), Croatia (2001), Oslo, Norway (2003), Rome, Italy (2005), Faro, Portugal (2007), Haifa, Israel, (2009), Tartu, Estonia (2011), Prague, Czech Republic (2013), Kiel, Germany (2015), and Durham, UK (2017).

The meeting will cover all areas of Physical Organic Chemistry, including all aspects of mechanism, structure and binding in organic systems. This also encompasses a wider range of areas from biology to materials using both theoretical and experimental approaches.

There will be a mixture of plenary and invited lectures plus submitted oral and poster presentations.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Dubrovnik!
