Welcome to ISMSC 2024

The International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (ISMSC) is the most prestigious international conference in the area of supramolecular science. The history of ISMSC can be traced back to two originally independent symposia, the International Symposium on Macrocyclic Chemistry (ISMC) and the International Symposium on Supramolecular Chemistry (ISSC). The ISMC series was founded by Professors Reed M Izatt and James J Christensen and began in 1977, in Provo, Utah, USA. Three years later, the first ISSC was held in Warsaw, Poland. With the increasing overlap of research topics in macrocyclic chemistry and supramolecular chemistry, in 2006 ISMC and ISSC were merged and the first joint conference was held in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The success of this merger served to launch the ISMSC as the premier conference in the field. The ISMSC has been held annually ever since with a hiatus for the pandemic. It moves from one nation to another. The previous meeting was held in Reykjavik, Iceland in 2023.

At the 16th ISMSC held in Oregon, USA in 2022, the Stoddart Institute of Molecular Science (SIMS) of the ZJU-Hangzhou Global Scientific and Technological Innovation Center made a successful bid to host the ISMSC 2024 in Hangzhou, China. This represents the second time that ISMSC has come to China. The first time was on the occasion of the 9th ISMSC held in Shanghai in 2014.

The ISMSC 2024 will be held from May 6 to 10, 2024 at the Blossom Water Museum Hotel Hangzhou (Address: No.118, Shuibo Road, Xiaoshan District, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China). Hangzhou, the Capital of Zhejiang Province, is one of China’s most enduringly popular holiday spots. Hangzhou is most famous for its West Lake panoramas, whose scenic vistas draw you into a classical Chinese watercolor vista of willow-lined banks, mist-covered hills, and multiple ancient Buddhist temples that were built over 1000 years ago. More than 1,000 international and domestic researchers, students, and industry representatives in the field of macrocyclic and supramolecular chemistry will attend the conference, including two Nobel Prize Laureates, one Wolf Prize winner, and over 20 academicians from China and overseas. 

Time: May 6-10, 2024, on-site registration is open on May 5. 2024.

Venue: Blossom Water Museum Hotel Hangzhou ( Address: No.118, Shuibo Road, Xiaoshan District, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China )
