The deadline to sign up as a session organizer is Friday, March 20th!
Abstract submission will open at the beginning of May and end in June. Exact dates are TBD.
Our full technical program may be viewed on this web page or downloaded as a convenient pdf. Please note we are still building our programming. Sessions may be added or removed depending on interest and/or availability of volunteers to organize sections. Please check back or follow us on social media for updates.

Including both inorganic and organic disciplines, programming in the area of Synthesis extends from new catalytic metal-oxide nanocrystals, to small molecule catalysis, organic synthetic methodology, green chemistry and natural product synthesis.
In order to address energy challenges in the 21st century, new technologies are needed to both generate sustainable energy and store that energy in batteries, super-capacitors and fuels. These symposia pull together experts from a variety of areas in chemistry and materials science to foster the innovation necessary for these breakthrough technologies.
This programming welcomes diverse topics pertaining to light emitting devices, light manipulation systems, and sensor technologies. Topics that seek to address modern challenges in optoelectronics are particularly encouraged. The symposia includes theoretical and experimental aspects.
Our program in Biological and Medicinal Chemistry pulls together chemists studying both native and synthetic biochemical systems that range from small molecule drugs to huge multi-protein cellular machines. As part of this program, we look forward to hosting a plenary talk from Wilfred van der Donk, the 2020 Harrison Howe Award winner.
These exciting symposia pull together Materials Chemists from the region working in areas of both “soft” materials such as polymers, aerogels and coatings and “hard” material such as ceramics and nanoparticles.
Symposia in this area focus on chemical and materials production and/or applications. These include experimental design, materials processing, quality assurance, chemical-assisted machining, chemical mechanical processing, specialty composite coatings, and additive manufacturing (3D printing). General topics such as new technology development as well as focused topics such as structure-process-property relationships will align with these symposia.
All areas of chemistry will be represented at the regional meeting! Even if you don’t fit into one of the broad areas above, you can contribute to the open topics sessions in Organic, Inorganic, Physical, and Analytical chemistry.
