Welcome message

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Organizing Commission, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the XXII International Symposium on Homogeneous Catalysis (XXII ISHC) to be held on 6-11 September 2020 in Lisbon, at Faculty of Sciences of the Universidade de Lisboa. It is a great honor for us to host this well established key conference on Homogeneous Catalysis for the first time in Portugal, and we should acknowledge the International Advisory Board members of ISHC for giving us this opportunity. We will do our best in order to achieve in Lisbon another memorable scientific event as the successful previous editions held biennially in Corpus Christi (1978), Dusseldorf, Milan, Leningrad, Kobe, Vancouver, Lyon, Amsterdam, Jerusalem, Princeton, St. Andrews, Stockholm, Tarragona, Munich, Sun City, Florence, Poznan, Toulouse, Ottawa, Kyoto and Amsterdam (2018), in chronological order.
All aspects of Homogeneous Catalysis, including metal complex catalysis, organo-, bio-, electro-, photo- and nanocatalysis, cooperative catalysis, heterogenized homogeneous catalysis, multiphase homogeneous catalysis, catalysis in unconventional media, noncovalent interactions in catalysis, mechanistic investigations, computational approaches, etc. will be highlighted in both already established and emerging fields.
The Conference venue is in a privileged position concerning travel requirements. Lisbon, voted as the "Best Destination City of Europe" (World Travel Awards, 2018), is easily reachable from any place of the world, and the airport and the main train stations are located inside the town itself (this is a unique case within the European capitals). The Conference venue is also in the town and with close access to public transportation, including metro, e.g., from/to the airport.
Attention will also be paid to the social programme, providing opportunities for mixing, visits to cultural places and excursions to sites of unique natural beauty, and for tasting the typical Portuguese cuisine and … the inspiration of our wines from various demarcated regions!
We'll be most pleased to welcome you herein and we hope you will enjoy a pleasant time along all the Conference, from both scientific and social points of view.
Looking forward to meeting you in Lisbon,
