It is our pleasure to welcome you to Vienna in 2019 for the European Symposium on Organic Chemistry. The 21st edition of this prestigious conference aims to bring together scientists from Europe and other parts of the world to share their interests in the field of Organic Chemistry at large.

Since its first edition in 1979, the biannual ESOC conference has developed into the flagship event for the Organic Chemistry community in Europe and beyond.

The art of Organic Synthesis lies at the heart of this conference, and its impact on the life sciences and the material sciences will also be prominently featured. Thematically, ESOC 2019 will highlight modern trends in


  • Total Synthesis and Methodology
  • Catalysis
  • Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology
  • Supramolecular Chemistry
  • Organic Materials
  • Physical and Computational Organic Chemistry.

The conference is ideally suited for organic chemists from both academia and industry. In particular, PhD students, postdocs and young researchers will have plenty of opportunity for exchange and discussion. Besides 11 plenary and 12 invited lectures, there are about 30 slots for short oral presentations (15 min) and space for ≥ 400 posters. A rich social program ensures numerous opportunities for networking, from the first reception on the evening of July 14 all the way to the conference dinner closing the event on July 18.

An additional benefit introduced for the first time at ESOC 2019 will be a job fair for PhD and postdoc students, where companies will conduct interviews on side, which is a free of charge add on for our student guests.

ESOC 2019 will take place in the “Messe Wien”, a modern, multifunctional and beautiful conference site in the heart of Vienna.

Welcome to Vienna!
