Welcome to Boron in the Americas Conference (BORAM XVII) to be held on June 8-12, 2020 in the beautiful town of Blacksburg on the campus of Virginia Tech.
The conference will showcase state-of-the-art research in catalysis, synthesis, materials, energy, medicine and chemical biology. Top-notch scientist from all over the globe will the discuss forefront of science relating to boron. A key activity during the conference is cross-fertilization and interactions between senior investigators with graduate students and postdocs. Researchers interested in boron research are invited to come and participate.
Abstract submission open: December 16, 2019
Abstract submission close: March 20, 2020
Early bird registration: December 16, 2019
Standard registration: March 20, 2020

The Boron in the Americas organization started under its old acronym "Boron in the USA (BUSA)" in 1988 with an emphasis to develop the next generation of researchers in boron science through biennial workshops held in various parts of the Americas.
Now in its 17th iteration, the BORAM conference series provides a forum for typically over 150 scientists to communicate as well as cross-fertilize their discoveries and ideas in boron-related chemistry and applications. BORAM particularly encourages students and postdoctoral researchers to participate and 1) learn about the state-of-the art of boron chemistry 2) discuss their work with faculty and industrial experts in a more casual and intimate atmosphere than may be found at large meetings.
The 17th BORAM Conference will be held at The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center in beautiful Blacksburg, Virginia.
