On behalf of the organizing committee, I cordially invite you to attend the 15th European Symposium on Organic Reactivity (ESOR 2015). The conference will be held in Kiel (Germany) August 30 to September 04, 2015. The date coincides with the 350th birthday of the University of Kiel and our event will be part of the jubilee festivities.

The ESOR series is a string of biennial events that are hosted in different European cities. The conference series started in Paris in 1987 and it has been held every second year ever since: in Padova, Italy (1989), Göteborg, Sweden (1991), Newcastle, UK (1993), Santiago de Compostela, Spain (1995), Louvain la Neuve, Belgium (1997), Ulm, Germany (1999), Cavtat (Dubrovnik), Croatia (2001), Oslo, Norway (2003), Rome, Italy (2005), Faro, Portugal (2007), Haifa, Israel, (2009), Tartu, Estonia (2011), and Prague, Czech Republic (2013).

After the very successful symposium in Prague (2013) the upcoming event in Kiel will continue the tradition and highlight the most recent results in organic reactivity. The ESOR Symposia are dedicated to fundamental research in organic chemistry and related areas, emphasizing the understanding of reactions (e.g., mechanisms, energetics) as well as the structures of compounds and materials. Experimental as well as theoretical contributions are welcomed with a particular preference for multidisciplinary approaches.

The program will include plenary and invited lectures, oral presentations, poster presentations, and an exhibition. We wish to cover all important areas of physical-organic chemistry and its interactions with other sciences, e.g., mechanistic studies as a driving force in modern synthesis, physical-organic chemistry of complex systems, new experimental and theoretical methods in organic chemistry.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Kiel

Warm regards and best wishes
