The Organizing Committee is pleased to invite you to participate in the 16th International Seminar on Inclusion Compounds (ISIC-16) and 3rd Youth School on Supramolecular and Coordination Chemistry, which will be held in Kazan (Russia), June 26-30, 2017.

The main objective of ISIC-16 is to present the frontiers of supramolecular chemistry based on inclusion phenomena. In addition, it will be a seminar to bring together both young and experienced scientists from across the world for a fruitful discussion at all levels. The program will feature several talk formats including a number of presentation opportunities for younger scientists.


International scientific journal Macroheterocycles will publish in 2017 special issue devoted to 16th International Seminar on Inclusion Compounds (ISIC-16). Web of Science and Scopus index this journal. Impact Factor 2015 = 0.804 has been issued by ISI Web of Knowledge (JCR 2015).
