The 249th American Chemical Society National Meeting and Exposition will be held in Denver, CO on March 22-26, 2015. The National Meeting theme is “Chemistry of Natural Resources”.
We would like to invite you to submit symposium proposals to the ACS Geochemistry Division on any topic of current interest to the geochemistry community. Links to the National Meeting theme are encouraged but not required. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
• Carbon capture and sequestration
• Oil shales and enhanced oil recovery
• Nuclear waste storage
• Contaminants transport, uptake, and remediation
• Isotope geochemistry and other tracers
• Reactivity in internal porous domains
• Mineral-water interface structure and reactivity
• Microbe-mineral interactions and elemental biogeochemical cycling
• Mesoscale and upscaling in geochemical systems
To organize a symposium, please contact Sebastien Kerisit (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>). Symposium proposals require a title, 150-200 word description, and a list and contact information for the symposium organizers. Please submit your symposium proposals by July 31st, 2014. Symposium proposals submitted by July 7th, 2014 will appear in the Call for Papers published in C&EN. Symposium proposals can be submitted after July 7th, but they will not appear in the published C&EN Call for Papers issue.
The Geochemistry and Reactive Transport in Shale Nanopores session at the Spring 2014 ACS meeting was highlighted in the April 7, 2014 issue of C&E News (http://cen.acs.org/articles/92/i14/Nuclear-Waste-Find-Home-Shale.html). Congratulations on the great session everyone!
Many thanks for everyone who voted and participated in our elections last December: The results are that Young-Shin Jun has been elected our new Program Chair-Elect.
