Manchester Pre-Meeting

For people who will be travelling to Manchester on Thu 19 May, there will be a pre-meeting at Manchester University starting at 13:45. Details of the programme are available here. Talks will be streamed on-line for anybody who wishes to attend virtually.


Refreshments and room keys will be available from 14:15 on Friday 20th May. On arrival at Gregynog Hall, keys can be collected from reception in the courtyard area adjacent to the carpark. Refreshments will be served in the main hall. The scientific programme will commence at 15:00. The talks are scheduled to finish at around 12:15 on Sun 22nd May, with lunch available afterwards.


The poster stands work best when posters are printed A1 sized in portrait orientation. They have velcro fixings and we will supply this if you need some.

Registration closed for 2022

Registration has now closed for ESBOC 2022 as all places are filled. If you are still interested in attending, please contact James Redman ( and we can add you to a reserve list.

ESBOC 2022 Announced

ESBOC will return to Gregynog Hall for the 55th symposium which will take place over 20-22 May 2022. The title of the symposium is “The Chemical Biology of Molecules and Materials” and it will be chaired by Prof Robert Field (University of Manchester).

Registration closed for ESBOC 2021

Registration has now closed for ESBOC 2021. A link for joining will be emailed to all registered delegates shortly before the start of the symposium. The symposium will take place on the Zoom webinar platform.

Programme for 2021 available

The programme for ESBOC 2021 is now available.

Please note that due to the online format, we have decided to hold the meeting for ONLY Thursday and Friday, 20-21 May. There are no events scheduled for 22-23 May.

Also due to the online format, we have made the difficult decision to eliminate the poster session for this year. It will return in our next in-person conference.

We have also scheduled a social hour on Thursday evening that all- but especially the early career researchers- are welcome to attend. Unfortnately, you will have to bring your own beer, but this will be a chance to talk to the organizers and other attendees.
