Information about the on-site registration, welcome party, and other conference details will be emailed to all in-person attendees before August 1.
Chiral, enantiopure compounds play an increasingly important role in modern society, as many pharmaceutical compounds, e.g. active compounds, mimics and biologics, are chiral. In modern regulatory work, the absolute configuration of such compounds must be accessed, as must the stability and structural integrity of biologics and generics of these. Therefore, techniques suitable for accurate absolute configuration assignment and detailed structural analysis are in high demand in research and industry.
The VOA conference series aims to present the cutting edge in research and development in the field of vibrational optical activity (VCD and ROA) and beyond, highlighting developments in chiroptical spectroscopy, experimentally as well as theoretically, bringing together the leading scientists in the field for stimulating presentations and discussions of the newest trends and applications of this diverse group of techniques.
After being delayed due to Covid-19, VOA7 will be held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, starting Sunday, August 7th and finishing on Thursday, August 11th. Considering the to Covid-19 situation, this biannual conference will be run mainly as an in-person conference. All participants including invited speakers are encouraged to attend in person, and some online sessions will also be organized to accommodate those who could not attend in person.
7th International Conference on Vibrational Optical Activity
August 7-11, 2022 – University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada
We are proud to announce that the 7th International Conference on Vibrational Optical Activity and Related Advances in Chiral Spectroscopic Analyses will be held in 2021 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
The VOA conference series aims to bring together the leading scientists and young graduate students in the field of vibrational optical activity and the related emerging chiral spectroscopic fields. We look forward to stimulating presentations and discussions of the newest trends and applications in the field of vibrational optical activity and beyond, highlighting both experimental and theoretical developments.
