The 248th American Chemical Society National Meeting and Exposition will be held in San Francisco, CA on August 10-14, 2014. The National Meeting theme is “Chemistry and Global Stewardship”.
The first round of proposals for Pacifichem 2015 have been approved, but the second round starts December 1st, 2013 and runs until March 1st, 2014. For those who haven't done this before, you have to have organizers from three pacific-rim countries. This is a perfect place to foster collaboration between geochemists in different countries! Head on over to their site and submit a symposium proposal. Geochemistry is part of the interdisciplinary Topic Area 6. Agrochemistry, Environmental, and Geochemistry.
