Welcome to the website of the 56tho Bürgenstock Conference that will take place at Hotel Waldstätterhof in Brunnen, Switzerland, May 2023. After the cancellation of the conference in 2020 and the online version in 2021 we were back with the traditional on-site conference in 2022 and welcomed 130 participants, including a double class of JSP. In 2023 we go back to the standard format of 105 senior und 15 JSP participants.
The ‘SCS Conference on Stereochemistry’, better known as ‘Bürgenstock Conference’, is an outstanding international chemistry meeting of high scientific quality, with an optimal setting for intense inter-disciplinary discussion.
From 1965 to 2008, the venue of the conference was the Bürgenstock-Resort above the lake of Lucerne in Switzerland. Since 2009, the meetings have moved to another beautiful location on the shores of Lake Lucerne: the Seehotel Waldstätterhof Brunnen.
Stereochemistry is the principle underlying our understanding of the processes of life and the properties of matter at the molecular level. It is a key element not only in all chemical disciplines, but also in modern molecular biology, molecular medicine, biophysics, and material design. Accordingly, the ‘Bürgenstock Conference’ has grown over the years into a multi-disciplinary conference where frontier science is being discussed. Lectures cover many areas of chemistry and relevant highlights from neighboring disciplines.
