A bit of history (past conferences: click here )

flagsThe French American Chemical Society (FACS) is a completely volunteer, non-profit organization that was informally established in 1986 by Pr. E. J. Corey (Harvard University Professor and Nobel Prize recipient) and the late Dr. Pierre Potier (Director of the Institute of Natural Products Chemistry in Gif-sur-Yvette, France) to promote organic chemistry in its broadest sense and also the scientific interactions between France, United States and Canada. FACS conferences present recent advances in organic synthesis which are of keen interest to academic and industry-based researchers. Our biennial conferences alternate between well-chosen sites in France and the USA.
