Welcome Message
Poster Download Welcome to Jeju, Korea!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to offer warm welcome to all of you to the 19th IUPAC International Symposium on Organometallic Chemistry Directed Towards Organic Synthesis. OMCOS 19 will be held at International Convention Center Jeju from June 25th to June 29th of 2017. The venue ICC Jeju is located in one of the most sought-after seaside towns, Seogwipo in Jeju Island. The city, settled on a rocky volcanic coastline, is known for its sandy beaches and natural wonders, and just 40 km south of Jeju International Airport.

We are especially pleased to host this prestigious symposium in the beautiful island of Jeju for the first time in Korea. As many of you know, organic synthesis in Korea has witnessed remarkable progress over the past four decades spanning the history of OMCOS. Thanks to the dedication of forerunners such as Professors Eun Lee and Sunggak Kim, the OMCOS community in Korea finds itself today strong and vibrant as ever. The early efforts have been followed by a range of achievements in organometallic catalysis, most notable of which is the pioneering hydroacylation chemistry developed by Professor Chul-Ho Chun, who will serve as Honorary Chair of this historic symposium.

We are deeply grateful to the distinguished chemists from around the world who have kindly agreed to come to OMCOS 19 to grace the event by sharing their latest exciting research with us. Participation of these prominent scientists representing many areas of science and the globe will surely make our scientific program strong and diverse. We would like to encourage young scientists, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, to attend OMCOS 19, which will provide great opportunities to interact with these scientists.

OMCOS 19 is organized by the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) – Center for Catalytic Hydrocarbon Functionalizations. Needless to say, an event of this magnitude cannot be held without help of many people and organizations. We are indebted to our sponsors including Seoul National University, the Korean Chemical Society and the Korean Society of Organic Synthesis for their generous support.

Looking forward to seeing you in beautiful Jeju!
