It is our pleasure to invite you to the 20th International Symposium on Novel Aromatic Compounds (ISNA-20) that we will be hosting in downtown Toronto on the premises of Toronto Metropolitan University in August 11-16, 2024.
The ISNA conference series offers a prestigious international forum to present and discuss new findings and exchange ideas on advanced synthesis, structure-property relationship, and applications of novel aromatic compounds. It was established in 1970 as the International Symposium on Nonbenzenoid Aromatic Compounds. Now the aim of the conference is to further elucidate fundamental principles of synthesis and properties of novel aromatic and other interesting pi-conjugated systems, to discuss recent experimental and theoretical insights into the concept of aromaticity, and to explore modern applications of such systems as advanced materials, as tailor-made functional molecules in supramolecular chemistry, optoelectronics, and biology.
It has been nearly two decades since Canada last hosted this event (ISNA-11 in St. John’s, 2005), and is now our pleasure to host the global ISNA community in Toronto in 2024, for only the third time the conference is held in Canada (the first was ISNA-7 in Victoria, 1992).
Thanks to the long successful history of ISNA and the tight-knit community, we are looking forward to an exciting meeting where participants can share their state-of-the-art research with the entire ISNA community and to network with the leading researchers in the field.
