Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Commission, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 7th EuCheMS Conference on Nitrogen Ligands to be held in Lisbon in 2018 (September 4-7). It is a honor for us to host a Conference of this series for the first time in Portugal. It will follow the successful previous editions held in Alghero (1992), Como (1996), Camerino (2004), Garmisch Partenkirchen (2008), Granada (2011) and Beaune (2015), and all of us, in Lisbon, will do our best towards the achievement of another memorable scientific event.

The scientific level of the conference will be provided by its attendants and thus you are cordially invited to present your best and recent scientific work orally, by poster or by poster with a flash oral presentation. The final selection of the type of presentation will have to take into account the scientific programme and facilities layout. Not only the senior researchers are welcome, but also the younger ones, encouraging the exchange of ideas among different generations.

The conference aims to highlight the role of Nitrogen Ligands in Coordination Chemistry, Metal-Organic Chemistry, Inorganic and Bioinorganic Chemistry, Biologically Active Compounds, Materials, Catalysis (both homogeneous and heterogeneous), Metal-mediated Synthesis, including also Non-covalent Interactions and Supramolecular Assemblies, C-H Bond Activation and Functionalization, and Electrochemistry.
All approaches will be considered, from fundamental to applied ones, including multidisciplinary studies thus avoiding artificial boundaries.

The Conference venue is in a privileged position concerning travel requirements. Lisbon is easily reachable from any place of the world, the airport and the main train stations are located inside the town itself (this is a unique case within the European capitals) and all are well served by metro. The Conference place, at the Universidade de Lisboa campus, is also in the town and with close access to public transportation, including metro. Diverse and convenient accommodation facilities are available close to the venue, including low-cost University residences.
Attention will also be paid to the social programme, providing opportunities for mixing, visits to cultural places, excursions to sites of unique natural beauty, and for tasting the typical Portuguese cuisine and feeling the inspiration of our wines!

We'll be most pleased to welcome you herein and do hope you will enjoy a pleasant time along all the Conference, from both scientific and social points of view.

Looking forward to meeting you in Lisbon,

Armando J.L. Pombeiro, Chair (IST, Universidade de Lisboa)
Luísa M.D.R.S. Martins, Co-Chair and Secretary (IST, Universidade de Lisboa)
M. Fátima C. Guedes da Silva, Co-Chair (IST, Universidade de Lisboa)
Elisabete C.B.A. Alegria, Co-Chair and Treasurer (ISEL and IST, Lisboa)
