Welcome!  The International Society of Chemical Ecology (ISCE) is organized exclusively for scientific purposes, and specifically to promote the understanding of interactions between organisms and their environment that are mediated by naturally occurring chemicals. Research areas include the chemistry, biochemistry and function of natural products, their importance at all levels of ecological organization, their evolutionary origin, and their practical application.

The 34th annual meeting of the ISCE will be held in Budapest, Hungary from 12-18 August, 2018 and hosted by by Miklós Tóth and Zoltán Imrei of the Plant Protection Institute, Centre for Agricultural Research, Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

The meeting venue is the Novotel Budapest City Hotel. Budapest is the capital of Hungary and a crossroads of Europe, a history that lends itself to the meeting's theme, "East meets West". We will keep you advised of registration dates, and the official meeting website will be continuously updated as information is available.
