Conference Description

The Batsheva de Rothschild seminar on Strong Bond Activation aims to blend young Israeli faculty members and graduate students with world-leading organic chemists. Therefore, to promote scientific interactions and foster collaboration between participants in a relaxing and friendly environment, we chose a remote location at the lowest place on Earth, and limited the number of participants (approximately 100 attendees).

The meeting will take place at The Dead Sea Ein Gedi hotel starting from Sunday, October 23, 2022 at 17:00 to Wednesday, October 26 at noon.

Each speaker will deliver a 30 minutes lecture, and free time and outdoor activities are planned. We intend to offer organized half-day tours to nearby sites such as the Dead-sea, Ein-Gedi Nature Reserve, and Masada.
