Calix2022 Symposium

Calix 2022 symposium


On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the 16th International Conference on Calixarenes (Calix 2022), which will be held in New Orleans (USA) on July 10 â€“ July 14, 2022.

Calix 2022 aims to bring together academic and industrial attendees from around the globe to discuss all aspects of calixarenes and related macrocyclic compounds. It will also offer networking opportunities among recognized leaders in the field, young scientists and students. In addition, there will be a reflective workshop organized by Women in Supramolecular Chemistry (WISC) to offer all participants (men and women) the opportunity to creatively reflect on their research, their career path and other aspects of academic life. To become a truly great society, all of its organizations must be diverse, equitable, and inclusive; they must each be communities that welcome and support a diverse array of peoples.  At Calix 2022 we believe we must foster an environment where each member of our academic and industrial family, particularly our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and other underrepresented members, are not only supported, but are able to thrive. Over the past several years, the Calix Symposium Series has made great progress in this regard, but we know we can always do more.  So please join us at Calix 2022 in identifying and removing the systematic barriers that have barred marginalized communities from full participation in the scientific community.

The program will include the fourth C. David Gutsche Award lecture by Professor Javier De Mendoza, five Plenary and many Invited speakers and Contributor lectures delivered by top-tier international scientists. In addition there will also be Flash Presentations selected from submitted poster abstracts, as well as scheduled Poster sessions.

The conference will take place in the vibrant southern US city of New Orleans. The venue for the meeting is the famous Hotel Monteleone, located in the heart of the historic French Quarter, to provide attendants with plenty of opportunity to explore New Orleans’ unique culture of festivals, music and Creole/Cajun cuisine.

Needless to say, we are closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation, and will announce any changes that occur due to this pandemic on this website.  In the meantime, we are assuming the best.

Yours sincerely,

The local organizing committee
