ISCE 2021 Registration

Registration is now open for the International Society of Chemical Ecology 2021 meeting. With the current rate of covid-19 infections in the 3rd wave and the increased level of lockdown in South Africa, the committee was unfortunately left with no option but to take the decision to host the 36th ISCE meeting virtually only. This eliminates further uncertainty regarding booking of flights etc. during these crucial two months leading to the meeting.

The first provisional programme is available on the website. If you submitted an abstract but have not yet received a notification of acceptance, please send an email to conference@carlamani.com. All presenters are requested to check their details on the provisional programme. If you wish to request a change, add a presenter, perhaps withdraw or if we missed something, please use the above e-mail address to contact us and we’ll gladly assist. The schedule for poster presentations is also available on the conference website.

All presenting authors are requested to register and pay online before the early bird date of Friday 16 July 2021 if you haven’t done so yet. In the unlikely situation that you encounter challenges with online credit card payment via our gateway, please complete the registration process and download your invoice to process a direct bank transfer. Banking details are available on the invoice.

Only pre-recorded presentations will be accepted for both oral (12 min) and poster presentations (3min) and a document with additional information guiding you through this process will be made available on the website soon.

Please note that sessions of the 36th ISCE Meeting may be photographed and/or recorded and made available to participants, members and other industry professionals in various formats (including, but not limited to, audio, video, live streaming, archived sessions, etc.). Your consent is requested upon registration.

Despite not being able to host you in the beautiful Stellenbosch, we look forward to your participation at the ISCE meeting!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or we can be of assistance.

Welcome to the 36th Annual meeting of the International Society of Chemical Ecology


The 36th annual meeting of the ISCE will be held from 5 - 10 September 2021 hosted by Drs. Jeremy Allison (Canadian Forest Service), Christian Pirk (University of Pretoria), Francois Roets (Stellenbosch University) and Bernard Slippers (FABI, University of Pretoria).

The theme of the conference "Chemical Ecology and Sustainable Development" will emphasize the immense potential chemical ecology has to both inform our understanding of the natural world and the potential for practical applications. Talks will cover the chemistry, biochemistry and function of natural products, their importance at all levels of ecological organization in diverse taxa, and their evolutionary origins.

Thank you for your support
