Welcome Message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to attend the 15th International Symposium on Novel Aromatic Compounds (ISNA-15), which will be held in Taipei, on July 28 (Sun)– August 2 (Fri), 2013.

The ISNA was founded in 1970 by Prof. T. Nozoe, who discovered the first nonbenzenoid aromatic compound, hinokitiol, in Taipei. The name and the goal of this symposium series have evolved as the researches and applications of aromatic compounds thriving in diverse range of disciplines. The ISNA-15 in Taipei will be an historical remark of this symposium. To continue the blossoming tradition of previous ISNA symposiums, ISNA-15 will provide an interactive platform for researchers worldwide to present new findings and exchange innovative ideas on advanced synthesis, structure-property relationship, and applications of novel aromatic compounds.

The scientific program of this symposium includes the Nozoe memorial lecture, plenary lectures, invited lectures, oral communications, and poster presentations. We welcome all of you to Taipei, a vibrant city where East meets West.
