Organizing Committee:
Tomas Kraus, Mélanie Vander Geeten

We have been pleased to have Prof. Andrew Hamilton (Oxford), Prof. Jonathan Steed (Durham) and Prof. Jacques Reisse (Brussels) deliver the Scientific Plenary lectures. We also had a Plenary lecture by Dr Mindy Dulai (Royal Society of Chemistry) on how we, as chemists, can contribute to finding solutions to the water challenges that we face.

The Social dinner was held in the old “Silent City” of Mdina, after a
guided tour of the small medieval city.

Second Scientific meeting, WG workshops and MC meeting, 16-20 November 2012, Lisbon 

The 2nd Scientific meeting of the Action was held in Caparica (Lisbon, Portugal) from November 16 till November 20, 2012.

Prof. Ramon Vilar (Imperial College London), invited by the Action, opened the scientific programme with a plenary lecture on Quadruply Stranded DNA: from Structural Curiosity to Biological Target.

One afternoon was dedicated to Working Group sessions and 4 half days to oral communications. A poster session was also organised. The event finished with the 3rd MC meeting.

First Scientific meeting, 19-21 November 2011, Rome

The first meeting of all Working Groups of the Action was held in Frascati (Rome, Italy) at Villa Tuscolana ( website) from 9:00 a.m. November 19 until 11:00 a.m. on November 21, 2011. This meeting was held to create an occasion for all participants to receive an overview of the scientific expertise represented within the Action, and to exchange ideas and stimuli even beyond the realms of the respective WGs. The choice of an open workshop formula implies that even this first meeting contributes to the dissemination of the goals and objectives of the Action, increases its visibility within a larger community, and represents an occasion for potential new participants to learn about the Action.

Schools

Fifth Training School, 11-14 November 2014, Padova

A last training school addressed to the young researchers of the Action took place at the University of Padova (Italy) from November 11 till November 14, 2014. The aim of this training school was to enable the young researchers (ideally last year PhD or early-stage post-docs) of the different groups involved in the Action CM1005 to exchange ideas, scientific experiences and to build up collaborations.

During this school there were a limited number of lectures delivered by senior scientists (already confirmed speakers: Antonella Dalla Cort and Stefan Kubik) including a lecture given by Dr Christine Courillon (ULB) on EU funding application for post-docs and a lecture given by Dr Stuart Cantrill (Nature Chemistry) on scientific publishing.

Fourth Training School, 2-7 February 2014, Bressanone

Our Action is co-organising the eighth edition of the European-Winter School on Physical Organic Chemistry (  E-WISPOC 2014). The topic of the 2014 edition is Physical Organic Chemistry of Complex Systems.

Third Training School, 30 August – 03 September 2013, Camerino

The Action co-organised the 9th ISOC School “Organomettalic Systems to Sustain a Better Futur” ( ISOC 2013) and awarded 19 Travel Grants to young participants (PhD students, post-docs or young researchers) working under the supervision of a member of the COST Action CM1005.

Second Training School, 27 January – 1 February 2013, Bressanone

For the second Training School of our Action we were associated to the seventh edition of the European-Winter School on Physical Organic Chemistry (  E-WISPOC) which took place in Bressanone (Italy) January 27 – February 1, 2013.

The school was attended by 133 participants: 106 students (49 supported by COST), 8 senior participants, 12 lecturers (all supported by COST), and 7 organizers. Students from different nationalities were present: Italy (35), Belgium (6), Canada (1), Switzerland (5), Czech Republic (1), Spain (11), France (3),  UK (10), Germany (14), Croatia  (4), Netherlands (4), Israel (3), Malta (2), Portugal (2), Russia (3), Turkey (3).

All the topics covered were devoted to different aspects of physical organic chemistry related to supramolecular chemistry, spanning from theoretical and methodological aspects to the different applications with regard to catalysis, molecular recognition, self-assembly to form molecular cages or gels and finally for the construction of molecular logic gates. Computational methods for the study of these systems were also described together with the most important analytical techniques for the study of supramolecular systems (NMR, spectroscopic UV / Vis, Fluorescence, CD and X-ray Difractometry).

The students had also an active role during the school presenting their research during three poster sessions (98 posters of which 30 were selected for flash presentations).

First Training School, 16-19 April 2012, Riccione

The first training school addressed to the young researchers of the Action was held in Riccione (Italy) at Hotel Vittoria ( website) from 15:00 p.m. April 16 until 12:00 a.m. on April 19, 2012. The aim of this first training school was mainly focused to widen the knowledge of the Action activities among the young researchers involved in the project and to create an occasion for all participants to exchange ideas, scientific experiences and to build up collaborations. During this school there were a limited number of lectures delivered by senior scientists (Kristin Bartik, Université libre de Bruxelles; Kari Rissanen, University of Jyväskyla; Cristiano Zonta, Università di Padova) and a special lecture given by Robert Eagling, Royal Society of Chemistry. The rest of the school will be dedicated to the young participants’ contributions and to discussions.
