Dear Colleagues
It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the joint meeting of the 33rd annual meeting of the ISCE and the 9th meeting of the APACE in Japan, August 23-27, 2017. The venue of the joint meeting is Ryukoku University Fukakusa Campus, Kyoto. The aim of the meeting is to bring together people, from young researchers to experienced leaders, working on all aspects of chemical ecology, from marine to terrestrial ecosystems. In addition to the plenary lectures, award lectures and keynote speeches, the meeting is designed to accommodate oral presentations and poster presentations. In the following pages you will find more detailed information about the scientific program and other important information about the meeting.
Looking forward to meeting you in Kyoto in summer, 2017.

On behalf of the Committees,

Professor  Junji Takabayashi
