Balticum Organicum Syntheticum is an international conference on organic synthesis hosted by historic Vilnius University (established 1579) in Vilnius, Lithuania.

The program will consist of a series of plenary lectures by a distinguished roster of Baltic and internationally known speakers, poster sessions, and a discussion period.

Environmentally benign (green) chemistry will be one of the conference's themes. All talks and poster sessions will take place at the university to maximize interactions between Western and Baltic researchers. Participation will be limited to 200 scientists. English will be the official language.

"In addition to its focus on green chemistry,"  conference organizer Victor Snieckus says,
"this conference will provide a forum for Baltic chemists to present their research to the
Western world, as well as help to forge ties between the Baltic chemistry community and
Western chemists, both academic and industrial."

Both fundamental and practical aspects of organic synthesis will be highlighted by the distinguished slate of speakers. Talks and poster sessions will take place at the 
university as well as the proximate hall of the Lithuanian Academy of Learning to maximize interactions between Western and Baltic researchers. Participation will be limited to 200 scientists. English will be the official language.
"We are looking forward to another exciting and relaxed meeting which has 
the honor to host, as it did in BOS 2000, a Nobel Prize awardee ," one of 
the organizers, Victor Snieckus says. "The conference aims to continue to provide a 
forum for Baltic chemists to present their research to the Western world, as well as help to forge ties between the Baltic chemistry community and Western chemists, both academic and industrial."

 

      Goals:

  • Provide a window for Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian science to the West.
  • Create a forum for interaction and discussion between Baltic and Western scientists, to establish in scientific cooperation at academic and industrial levels.
  • Present a unique cultural, linguistic and social experience for participants and accompanying persons.
