It is a great pleasure to invite you to take part in the fourth edition of the International Symposium on Synthesis and Catalysis 2021 (ISySyCat2021) taking place at the University of Evora in the historically recognized mediaeval city
of Evora from August 31st to September 3rd 2021. The city of Evora besides its striking beauty, uniqueness and hospitality is steeped in history having been the home to the Romans, the Moors, Visigoth's and others, including kings of
Portugal. It has a coveted UNESCO world heritage stamp, and this walled city is the location of a Roman temple, and several palaces and exotic cathedrals. The conference will take place in the original part of the University known as
Colégio Espirito Santo which dates back to the 16th Century.
The conference will focus on key topics in contemporary organic, organometallic, polymer synthesis and catalysis, which are of relevance to both academic and industrial chemists alike. This is reflected in the topics that will be discussed in the plenary lectures. Generally speaking, ISySyCat focuses strongly on chemical synthesis with catalysis as one of the key enablers. Like always, we anticipate a good mix of participants from academia and industry. This is reflected in the list of plenary speakers that hail from both academia and industry from all over the world. We are eagerly looking forward to seeing you in Evora in September 2021.

The conference will be organized into 15 plenary lectures (45 min. each), delivered by a series of internationally recognized speakers from academia and industry, 25 short talks (20 min., selected from the submitted abstracts by the
scientific committee), 36 flash talks (about 10 mins each selected from the submitted abstracts by the scientific committee) and two poster sessions. There will be prizes for the best communications, that will be awarded during the gala
dinner on the 2nd of September.
The poster sessions will be divided into three distinct categories; Synthetic Methodology, Catalysis, total or target based synthesis. The scientific committee will select the best posters from each category, and a prize will be awarded to the first author.
Half of the accepted posters will be presented on the first day and the second half on the second day (further details will be given in due course). Presenters will be expected to place their poster in their attributed space by lunch-time on the 31st of August and remove them by the coffee break on the last day (3rd of September).
Those who will be presenting oral communications should send their power-point presentations to the organizing committee via email about 3-4 days from the start of the conference.
Those who arrive on the 30th of August can register in the evening of the 30th of August from around 4 pm onwards (till about 7 pm). The venue will be clearly sign-posted.
The conference will focus on the following key areas:
University of Muenster, Germany
Scripps (CA), USA
University of Auckland, New Zealand
Stanford University, USA
Manchester University, UK
Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Germany
Eindhoven University of Technology, Holland
Queens University, Canada
