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.

Annual Meeting: Stockholm, Sweden

The 31st annual meeting of the ISCE will be held in Stockholm at the Aula Magna auditorium of Stockholm University’s campus. The meeting will take place from from 29 June - 3 July 2015 and is graciously hosted by Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson and Christer Löfstedt.

The scientific program will cover the great diversity of the chemical ecology research today and will feature symposia that examine interactions among diverse taxa and new techniques for identifying the active molecules behind the interactions. Additional details will be announced here as the meeting draws closer, but for the most current information, please see the the official meeting website.
