6th European Symposium on Organic reactivity

Louvain-la-Neuve      24 - 29 July 1997
_______________________________________First Circular

The Catholic University of Louvain, located in the Belgian city of Louvain-la-Neuve, will host the next conference entitled "European 
Symposium on Organic Reactivity". This will be the sixth edition of a series of successful meetings held in Paris (1987), Padova (1989), 
Göteborg (1991), Newcastle-upon-Tyne (1993) and  Santiago de Compostela  (1995).

The conference will be held during the period Thursday 24 to Tuesday 29 July 1997. The scientific sessions will start on Thursday 
afternoon and the meeting will end at lunchtime on Tuesday.

Louvain-la-Neuve is located about 30 km South of Brussels in the french-speaking part of Belgium. The city is connected with Brussels 
by rail and is readily accessible by road (Motorway E411) from everywhere in Europe. Brussels National Airport is linked to all major 
and most medium-size European cities.  
The Conference site will be part of the academic facilities of the Catholic University of Louvain (U.C.L.). This University was founded in the old Belgian city 
of Leuven in 1425 as one of the oldest universities in Europe. In the early 1970's, the french-speaking part of the University moved to a completely new city which 
was called Louvain-la-Neuve, on the territory of a town named Ottignies. The University population amounts to more than 20,000 students.  Courses are 
organized in all disciplines of human knowledge by ten Faculties : Theology, Philosophy, Law, Economic and Social Sciences, Philology and Arts, Psychology 
and Educational Sciences, Sciences, Applied Sciences, Medicine and Agronomy. 

Scientific Programme
The meeting will be devoted to all aspects of physical organic chemistry.
The conference programme will focus on three main topics :
1. 	Mechanisms and reactivity in organic, bioorganic and organometallic chemistry, including theoretical approaches
2.	Photochemical and electron transfer activation processes
3. 	Molecular recognition and enzyme mechanism.

The programme will include 12 plenary lectures, two parallel sessions with their own invited lectures. A limited number of oral 
presentations will be selected among the submitted contributions. 
Two separate poster sessions are planned on Friday afternoon and Monday afternoon with comfortable discussion times. Persons 
wishing to present an oral or poster contribution should submit a one-page abstract according to the format detailed below not later 
than  February 15, 1997 and send it to
