Welcome to the 20th International Symposium on Olefin Metathesis and Related Chemistry (ISOM XX)

    On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we wish to extend a cordial invitation to you to attend 20th International Symposium on Olefin Metathesis and Related Chemistry (ISOM XX), to be held in Nara, Japan. The meeting will be held at Todaiji-temple Lecture Hall in Nara from Sunday July 14 to Friday July 19, 2013. ISOM XX follows the very successful series of meetings from ISOM first at Mainz, Germany in 1976 till the last one at Rennes, France in 2011.
   The objective of ISOMXX is to discuss some special topics relating to olefin metathesis chemistry and related organometallic chemistry, application for organic synthesis, polymer chemistry, material science, medicinal chemistry, natural product synthesis, and industrial process to share a common interest in this field. Your contribution to this symposium will be great value to all the participants.

We look forward to seeing you in Nara, Japan.
