Welcome to the BMOS-11 Website!

The BMOS are biannual Meetings that have grown from a modest beginning and are now one of the most important events in the Brazilian Chemical Society. The attendance has grown steadily and our last meeting held in the city of São Pedro-SP last August had an attendance of approximately three hundred participants, including an expressive number of chemists from other South American countries, such as Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.

The 11th BMOS will be held in Canela, a small and quiet town in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, important cultural and industrial area. Rio Grande do Sul state capital, the city of Porto Alegre, is within one and a half hour's flight from the city of Rio de Janeiro, one of the most famous postcards of Brazil. The location has been chosen in order to facilitate as much as possible interaction between the speakers and members of the audience, particularly outside the formal program. Our meetings show some resemblance to the Gordon Conferences that are quite popular in the United States, highlighting cutting-edge Science and close interaction among the participants, including some from industry.

For the 11th edition of the BMOS we have scheduled 9 plenary lectures (60-minute oral presentations), 8 invited lectures (40-minute oral presentations), 3 short lectures (30-minute oral presentations) by distinguished chemists from several countries, as well as about 20 flash presentations (07-minute oral presentations) to be selected by the organizing committee from the abstracts submitted as oral communications.
