It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the 6th International Conference on Cucurbiturils (ICCB 2019) in Athens, Ohio (USA) on the campus of Ohio University, July 21-24, 2019.

The conference will provide an open forum for discussions and exchanges on all aspects of the synthesis and properties of cucurbiturils and related receptors, with an emphasis on recent applications. The schedule will follow the style of the preceding four conferences.

Athens is a picturesque town located in southeast Ohio, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It is home to Ohio University, a charming and friendly campus, and the oldest university in the state. Athens is surrounded by green hills and small lakes. Gorges, waterfalls and peculiar geological features can be found 40 minutes away at Hocking Hills State Park

Ohio University is located 120 kilometers southeast of the John Glenn Columbus International Airport. Shuttles will be offered for your transfer to Athens. Alternatively, you can rent a car at the airport, and enjoy the pleasant 80-minute drive.

We look forward to your participation at ICCB 2019.

Sincerely,

Eric Masson (Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Ohio University, Athens, OH)
