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 35th annual meeting of the ISCE will be held in Atlanta, Georgia from 2-7 June 2019, and hosted by by Mark Hay and Julia Kubanek of the Georgia Institute of Technology's School of Biological Sciences and Aquatic Chemical Ecology Center.

The meeting venue is the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, near the center of Atlanta. The scientific program will offer sessions focused on inter- and intraspecific interactions, as well as molecular structures, applications, and member-submitted symposia. We will keep you advised of registration dates, and the official meeting website will be continuously updated as information is available.
