2020 Meeting

Location: Stellenbosch, South Africa
Dates: 6 - 11 September, 2020

The 36th annual meeting of the ISCE will be held from 6-11 September 2020 in Stellenbosch, South Africa, hosted by Drs. Jeremy Allison (Canadian Forest Service), Christian Pirk (University of Pretoria), Francois Roets (Stellenbosch University) and Bernard Slippers (FABI - University of Pretoria).

The theme of the conference "Chemicial Ecology and Sustainable Development" will emphasize the immense potential chemical ecology has to both inform our understanding of the natural world and the potential for practical applications. Talks will cover the chemistry, biochemistry and function of natural products, their importance at all levels of ecological organization in diverse taxa, and their evolutionary origins.

The conference will be held at the Conservatory on the campus of Stellenbosch University, with one day of talks at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. Stellenbosch University lies amongst the Boland Mountains in the winelands of the Western Cape. On the main campus, paved walkways wind between campus buildings – some dating from previous centuries; others just a few years old. Architecture from various eras attests to the sound academic foundation and establishment of an institution of excellence. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of the setting of Kirstenbosch, against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.

Abstracts may be submitted through 21 February 2020, and registration opens in March. For a complete list of deadlines, as well as further information on conference fees, travel, and accommodations, please see the official conference website.
