INVITATION TO ATTEND

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the "Divisione di Chimica Farmaceutica" of the "Società Chimica Italiana" (SCI), "Sociedad Española de Quimica Terapeutica" (SEQT), "Divisão de Química Terapêutica" of the "Sociedade Portuguesa de Quimica", the Organizing Committee and I cordially invite you to attend the Italian-Spanish-Portuguese Joint Meeting in Medicinal Chemistry that will be held in Palermo, Italy on July 17 – 20, 2018.
The origins of this event date back to 1989 when the leaders of the Italian and Spanish Pharmaceutical Communities organized in Granada the "1er Congreso Conjunto Hispano-Italiano de Quimica Terapeutica".
Six years later, in 1995, in Ferrara was held the second joint event named "II Congresso Congiunto Italiano-Spagnolo di Chimica Farmaceutica".
In 2013, in Brussels, during an EFMC meeting, it was discussed the possibility of resuming the series of joint events interrupted for so many years and in July 2015, the "Spanish-Italian Medicinal Chemistry Congress" (SIMCC-2015) took place in Barcelona.
The Board of the "Divisione di Chimica Farmaceutica" of SCI proposed the Spanish Colleagues to hold a Joint Meeting in Palermo in 2018 and to involve the Portuguese Colleagues in the event, who enthusiastically accepted.
The Meeting will include 5 plenary lectures, 10 Keynote lectures, 40 short communications and poster presentations.
Young researchers are encouraged to participate and to present their works in a short communication since bursaries are available to support the registration fee and accommodation. The Organizing Committee is also preparing a rich social program to create a friendly atmosphere and facilitate networking.
Beside the scientific aspects of the program, you will have the chance to enjoy Palermo, a place where you can find spectacular natural beauties, an impressive cultural heritage and excellent food, making the city one of the most intriguing tourist destinations in the world.
It is our intention to make this Joint Meeting a memorable event both scientifically and socially for the attendees and we are working hard to ensure that.
We look forward to welcoming you in Palermo in July 2018.



The Chairman of The Organizing Committee
