|We take great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the 25th International Symposium on the Organic Chemistry of Sulfur (ISOCS-25), which will be held at the Jan Długosz University in Częstochowa, Poland, from the 24th to 29th of June 2012. ISOCS-25 follows a long tradition started with the first symposium held in 1964 in Liblice (former Czechoslovakia) and organized by Professor V. Horak. Since then, the next meetings have been organized all over the world. Our 25th Symposium can be considered to be a milestone and anniversary event. As during previous ISOCS meetings, diverse aspects of sulfur chemistry will be represented. We are happy to announce that many prominent chemists have already agreed to present plenary and invited lectures at the Symposium. We believe that your attendance and presentation of your own achievements is vital to the success of the Symposium.
Częstochowa, with its 250.000 inhabitants, is the twelfth largest city in Poland and is located in the northern part of the Silesia region. It is surrounded by picturesque rocky jurassic hills that are part of the Cracow-Częstochowa Upland, the region that is known for a chain of medieval castles called the “Trail of Eagle Nests”. Częstochowa is a city of long cultural and national tradition – its origins reach back to the Middle Ages - but it is also a modern city with excellent infrastructure. With its seven colleges and universities and forty thousand students the city is an important academic centre. Częstochowa is famous for the Pauline’s monastery in Jasna Góra with its miraculous painting of Holy Mary known as “Black Madonna”. Every year the sanctuary is visited by four to five million pilgrims from more than eighty countries.
The streets of Częstochowa positively buzz with life in the evenings. There are nice restaurants and pubs with excellent atmosphere for dinner or an evening beer.
We look forward to welcoming you to Częstochowa in June 2012.
