Conference Cancellation


I am very disappointed to have to tell you that we must cancel ISMSC2020 as a result of the COVID-19 situation. 

Cancelling the meeting after the hard work the organising committee has put in was a hard decision to make but the safety and wellbeing of our delegates has to be our paramount priority.

I am terribly sorry to have inconvienienced you but this is the safest action to take.

The next ISMSC meeting is scheduled to be held in Oregon, USA from August 1-6 2021.

If you have questions please free to contact us.


Important Announcement - Virtual Poster Competition


Since we can’t meet in person in Sydney this year, an @ISMSC2020 Twitter Poster competition will run instead. 

Present your poster to a global supramolecular chemistry audience via Twitter (@ISMSC2020). The online poster session will start on Tuesday August 25 at 9:00 am (Sydney time) and run for 24 h. (Note: Sydney is well ahead of most other time zones this will mean a Monday start date for many places.) Prizes include an invitation to participate in ISMSC2021 in Oregon, USA (with free registration) and the chance to present at an online symposium run by CHEMPlusCHEM in late September/early October. To be eligible for prizes you will need to register for the competition.
