INVITATION


Dr. Eusebio Juaristi
CINVESTAV
México
 Chairman ICOS 16

 
Welcome to the web-page of  the
16th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ORGANIC SYNTHESIS.

     The congress will take place in Mérida, Yucatán, México, June 11- 15,  2006.

     The organizing committee invites you to attend  this magnificent event, where the most recent advances in synthetic organic chemistry will be discussed. In addition, we hope that the meeting will promote interaction and collaboration among chemists from around the world.

      The colonial city of  Mérida  (the White City),  in the Yucatán Peninsula, is a quiet, safe and quaint city. Yucatán is rich in archeological Mayan sites, beautiful beaches, spectacular reefs, and a number of ecological reserves where the particularly rich flora and fauna of the region can be enjoyed.
