2019 Congress – Successful Meeting in Kyoto

The 27th Congress has just finished with 800 participants from 33 different countries. In total there were 41 plenary, invited and award lectures, 64 short oral presentations, and nearly 400 posters were presented, 48 of them with an additional ‘flash presentation’

Images of the poster prize winners and all congress participants in Kyoto are now available on the Congress page.

We congratulate Professors Akai and Kita and their many helpers for organizing such a highly successful congress.






The International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry (ISHC) was established in August, 1968, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the USA by Dr. Raymond N. Castle (1916-1999). The function of the society is to promote heterocyclic chemistry, in particular by serving as the primary sponsoring agency for the ISHC-Congress, a large biennial meeting attracting up to a thousand participants. Further aims of the ISHC are to honor persons who have made outstanding contributions to the field with two distinguished Awards and the appointment of ISHC Fellows. The ISHC is also actively involved in the publication of “Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry” (PHC) a major reference work on heterocyclic chemistry published annually since 1989.
