Dear Colleagues,

Dijon, Quartier Vauban 03 © Office de Tourisme de Dijon - Atelier Démoulin

On behalf of the International Scientific Committee and of the Local Organization Committee, it is my great pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the International Symposium on Metal Complexes (ISMEC 2017) which will be held in Dijon (virtual tour), France from the 11th to the 15th June 2017.

Initiated in 1974, ISMEC has become years after years a well-established series of international conferences focusing on the study and applications of metal complexes in the fields of analytical, biomedical, environmental, supramolecular, inorganic, physical, and industrial chemistry.

Hosted in 2017 for the first time in France, the 44th edition aims at providing an outstanding forum for sharing new ideas and discussing the most recent advances on the thermodynamics and kinetics of coordination processes. By gathering researchers from both academia and industry, ISMEC 2017 seeks to foster new collaborations among researchers from diverse backgrounds with complementary skills and goals.

As ISMEC traditionally gathers many scientists having strong interest in the interplay of metal ions and complexes with biomolecules or biological material, the 2017 meeting will follow the 14th International Symposium on Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry (ISABC14) organized in Toulouse (June 7–10, 2017).

I am looking forward to welcoming you in Dijon next June.

Sincerely yours,

Michel Meyer

Conference Chair of ISMEC 2017
