Fall 2018 ACS Meeting

The Call for Abstracts for the Fall 2018 ACS National Meeting is now OPEN!
 
As a reminder, the meetings will be held in the wonderful city of Boston, Massachusetts August 19-23, 2018. The meeting theme is “Nanoscience, Nanotechnology and Beyond”.
 
The Geochemistry division has curated an exciting and truly interdisciplinary program that will undoubtedly cover all your research needs and interests, as you can note from the list of symposia below:
-          Interfacial Chemistry under Nano-scale Confinement
-          Mechanistic Understanding of Mineral Growth & Dissolution
-          Microbial Chemical Processes & Advanced Nanotechnology for Contaminated Site Remediation
-          Molecular Understanding of the Structure & Reactivity of Mineral-Water Interfaces
-          Surface Chemistry & Properties of Nanoscale Materials
-          Visualizing Heavy Element Contamination in the Environment at the Nanoscale
-          General Geochemistry
 
The submission deadline, Monday, March 26th at 11:59 EST, is fast approaching. I strongly encourage you to submit an abstract as well as to reach out to your colleagues and networks outside of the Geochemistry division to spread the word and invite them to contribute and participate.The Call for Abstracts for the Fall 2018 ACS National Meeting is now OPEN!

ACS National Awards Self Nomination Form

The American Chemical Society is seeking nominations for the the 2019-2020 ACS National Awards Canvassing and Selection Committees.

 

Selection Committees are chemical professionals appointed to the committee to determine the recipient for each national award.

Canvassing Committees identify potential new nominees and arrange for their nomination. Canvassing Committees are established for awards with 8 or fewer total nominees for two successive award cycles and remain in place until the nominations are above 8 for at least two successive award cycles.

Committee members must be members of the Society. Members serve a term of three award-years and most committee work is accomplished online or by telephone. This appointment does not involve any travel. The selection cycle begins in March of each year and ends in July.

 

If you are interested in serving on the committee, please fill out the following form: https://fs18.formsite.com/ACSAwards/form11/index.html?1436810347950 


Canvassing Committees identify potential new nominees and arrange for their nomination. Canvassing Committees are established for awards with 8 or fewer total nominees for two successive award cycles and remain in place until the nominations are above 8 for at least two successive award cycles.
