Welcome!  The International Society of Chemical Ecology (ISCE) is organized exclusively for scientific purposes, and specifically to promote the understanding of interactions between organisms and their environment that are mediated by naturally occurring chemicals. Research areas include the chemistry, biochemistry and function of natural products, their importance at all levels of ecological organization, their evolutionary origin, and their practical application.

The 30th annual meeting of the ISCE was held in Champaign-Urbana, IL, USA from July 8-12, 2014. This year we were pleased to meet jointly with CSiV (Chemical Signals in Vertebrates), providing a unique opportunity for symposia that spanned vertebrate and invertebrate systems.

Congratulations to Conference Chair May Berenbaum and all the volunteers for a very successful meeting! The 2014 program and abstracts are now available on the ISCE website, and also at the official meeting website.
