A series of highly successful, international conferences on reactive intermediates and unusual molecules were held at Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia in 1991, 1994, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016. A series of international conferences (symposia) on reactive intermediates and unusual molecules, now known as ISRIUM, started in 1978 in Geneva (EUCHEM conference on electron deficient reactive intermediates, organized by Charles W. Jefford and Curt Wentrup). Among the speakers in this first conference were Peter Stang, Maitland Jones, Jr., Wolfgang Kirmse, Bob Moss, Oleg Nefedov, Walter Lwowski, Udo Brinker, R.F.C. Brown, Charles Rees, John Cadogan, Mieczyslaw Makosza, and many others. The Heron Conferences form part of the ISRIUM series. Due to popular demand, the Heron Conferences have grown into a regular triennial event. 
         In 2019 we depart from the tradition of holding the conference at Heron Island. Instead, it will be held at the fabulous Ayers Rock Resort in Australia's red heart. Uluru is the aboriginal name for Ayers Rock, which features prominently in their beliefs and stories of how the land was created by the ancestors in the Dreamtime
