The XLIII  edition of the “Attilio Corbella” International Summer School on Organic Synthesis (ISOS 2018) will be held in Gargnano (BS) from 10th to 14th June 2018.
The School will start on Sunday evening (18:00) and will end with the social dinner on Thursday night.

The “A. Corbella” School on Organic Synthesis has a long tradition, which dates back to 1976. Named after its cofounder Attilio Corbella, who died prematurely in 1978, the School is sponsored by the Division of Organic Chemistry of the Italian Chemical Society (SCI) and organized under the direction of the Department of Chemistry of the Università degli Studi di Milano, every year in June in Gargnano, a small village on Garda Lake.

Since its foundation, the School has been held in “Palazzo Feltrinelli”, a XIX century villa overlooking the lake which is property of the Università degli Studi di Milano and is equipped with teaching facilities for up to 150 participants. A free bus service to Gargnano will be organized, with stops at Milano railway Central Station, Milano Linate airport, Milano-Bergamo Orio al Serio airport, Brescia railway station.

The School is mainly directed to Ph.D. students and young researchers coming both from University and Industry. It normally attracts close to 100 students, including the best graduate students from all the main Italian and European Universities.
REGISTRATION deadline is 21st May 2018; a limited number of FELLOWSHIPS will be available.

The lectures span all aspects of modern synthetic Organic Chemistry and focus on research topics at the cutting-edge of organic chemistry and related areas, such as analytical chemistry, materials, innovative enabling technologies.

The scientific PROGRAMME of ISOS 2018 will consist of lectures delivered by acclaimed scientists from academia and industry, poster sessions, short oral communications, a problem session and several informal meetings among the attendees and the speakers throughout the five-day schedule. Aim of the school is to create a friendly environment and provide the opportunity to young scientists, post-docs and PhD students to meet leading scientists of high international reputation in a very relaxed and informal atmosphere.
