It is our pleasure to invite you to participate at the 18th Blue Danube Symposium on Heterocyclic Chemistry, which will take place at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia in Autumn 2019 (September 18 until September 21, with welcome reception and Official Opening of the Conference in the evening of the September 18).

Following the long tradition of Blue Danube Symposia which started in 1991 as a regional meeting of chemists from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, and Austria, later joined by Slovenia as well, these symposia have soon grown into an international meeting series attracting participants from all over the world. In 2019 the meeting will return to Slovenia, being held at the University of Ljubljana. The campus is within short distance to the city centre of Ljubljana with numerous possibilities to relax and recharge between the exciting scientific program that will cover all aspects of heterocyclic chemistry. Besides presentations from well-reputed plenary speakers the symposium will also offer talks from the representatives of the society countries (Blue Danube Speakers) and short oral presentations of young talents emerging in the field. In addition to the exciting scientific program, we also plan an accompanying exhibition of various companies and commercial suppliers related to field.

We hope that we will be able to create an entertaining and stimulating event and look forward to welcoming you in Ljubljana in September 2019!
