Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 6th International Symposium on Halogen Bonding (ISXB6), which will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from October 20-25, 2024. The symposium will take place at the Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel, a modern resort located in a secluded beachfront location in the vicinity of the Dubrovnik Old Town.
The ISXB series of symposia aim to bring together researchers from all over the world who are interested in the fascinating phenomenon of halogen bonding and related interactions, from fundamental principles to applied technologies, covering both experimental and theoretical approaches in various areas of research ranging from advanced materials to medicinal chemistry and chemical biology. The ISXB6 will feature keynote addresses and invited lectures by internationally renowned experts, contributed presentations, posters, and flash communications by young and promising researchers. The Symposium will also provide ample opportunities for networking and socializing in a friendly and stimulating atmosphere.
Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the Mediterranean, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers a rich cultural and artistic heritage, as well as stunning natural scenery. The city is surrounded by medieval walls and fortresses and boasts a wealth of must-visit sites, such as monuments, museums, churches, palaces, and fountains. Dubrovnik is also known for its vibrant nightlife, gastronomic delights, and festivals. And around the Symposium you will have chances to explore and enjoy the magnificent city and nearby attractions, such as the city walls, the Rector’s Palace, the Dubrovnik Cathedral, the Stradun, the Sponza Palace, and more.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Dubrovnik and to sharing with you an exciting and memorable scientific and social event!
