Welcome

Dear Colleagues,
The Divisions of Organic Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ) are organizing, in a single event, the 13th National Organic Chemistry Meeting (13ENQO) and the 6th National Medicinal Chemistry Meeting (6ENQT) that will take place in January 15-17, 2020 at the University of Aveiro, Portugal. We warmly invite you to attend this scientific meeting.

The interdisciplinary nature of the meeting represents a unique opportunity to bring together specialists from all domains of the Organic and Medicinal Chemistry areas, providing a forum to discuss recent developments and innovative ideas and foster new collaborations. An attractive program is being prepared, spanning advances in both established fields and emerging topics. The meeting comprises plenary and keynote lectures from renowned national and international scientists, invited oral communications, selected oral communications, and poster communications that will surely attract the interest of a vast audience. The attendance of students and young researchers is strongly encouraged and supported by affordable registration fees.

Aveiro is a booming and beautiful city in the North of Portugal, located on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. It is known as “the Portuguese Venice” due to its distinctive lagoon and system of canals. The city is easily reached by train from Porto or Lisbon international airports.

We look forward to welcoming you in Aveiro in January 2020.
