Invitation to Conference

Dear Colleagues,

15th International Symposium on the Chemistry of Natural Compounds (SCNC 2023) will be held on November 2-5 2023 in Antalya, Turkiye.

This symposium series has been organized jointly by Near East University (formerly by Anadolu University) and the S. Yu. Yunusov Institute of Chemistry of Plant Substances (ICPS) of the Uzbekistan Academy of Sciences biennially since 1994 in Uzbekistan and Turkey. Only the 9th SCNC was held in 2011 at Urumqi, Xinjiang-Uyghur Autonomous State, and the 13th SCNC in 2019 in Shanghai, P.R. China. Since 2011, Xinjiang Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of People’s Republic of China became one of the organizers of this scientific forum.

SCNC deals with a number of relevant topics presented by the most reputed scientists in the field. In addition, the symposium is open to relevant contributions covering chemical, pharmacological, and biological activity-related aspects of natural products to be presented either orally or as a poster. We, therefore, would highly appreciate your participation and expect your earliest registration. Previous SCNC symposia were organized in Turkey in Eskisehir (1996, 2009), Ankara (2005), Isparta (2001), and Antalya (2015). The others were held in Uzbekistan and China.

We are ready to welcome you on November 2-5, 2023 in the centennial year of the Republic of Turkiye, to get together with fellow scientists and share knowledge in this global event in Antalya, Türkiye.

We look forward to meeting you all in Antalya, Türkiye.

Prof. Dr. K. Husnu Can Baser (Turkey) Chairman
Prof. Dr. Shomansur Sh. Sagdullaev (Uzbekistan) Co-chairman
