Dear colleagues

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 14th International Conference on Cutting-Edge Organic Chemistry in Asia (ICCEOCA-14) which will be held in Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan, during 26th-29th September 2019, it is my great pleasure to extend our warm welcome to you to participate in this conference. The ICCEOCA-14 is a continuation of annual conferences held in the member countries of Asian Cutting-Edge Organic Chemistry Promotion Network (ACP) on the rotating basis. The ACP Program has flourished since its inaugural conference (ICCEOCA-1) in 2006 in Okinawa, Japan. Over the years, the annual conferences have been recognized as one of the most important conferences in organic chemistry and related fields in the Asian region.
We invite over 160 researchers from Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and Japan to exchange their cutting-edge researches in the field of organic chemistry. The conference is also open for other researchers with or without a poster presentation from both academia and industry. We are honored to have you with us to participate in the ICCEOCA-14 which not only provides a wonderful forum to introduce the most recent advances in organic chemistry research but also offers an excellent opportunity of networking for future research collaborations with leading chemists in Asia. The four-day program features invited lectures, poster presentations with one-minute oral presentation for each poster and social activities in a beautiful natural area of Hokkaido.
We look forward to welcoming you to Niseko, Hokkaido and we thank you in advance for participating and contributing to the success of the conference. We also wish you a very pleasant and fruitful stay throughout the ICCEOCA-14.
With our best wishes,

Masaya Sawamura
