48th CERM ACS 2017 Meeting in Dearborn, MI

Greetings Chemistry Colleagues,

The 48th Central Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society will be held at the Henry Hotel in Dearborn, Michigan on June 7-9, 2017.

At this time the CERMACS Organizing Committee would like to identify individuals interested in serving as a Symposia Organizers. Symposia organizers would be responsible for the symposium title, inviting at least 5 to 7 speakers to present and chairing the session. Symposia topics would include such areas as energy storage, alternative energy, paint and coatings, chemical analysis, instrumentation and topics involving environmental issues targeting the Great Lakes and/or regional water quality issues. A major theme of the meeting is diversity and therefore, we would especially be interested in symposia regarding the topic of diversity in the chemical profession.

This meeting will also include the more standard sessions in the fields of chemical education, analytical, biological, computational, environmental, inorganic, organic, physical, and polymer chemistry. Individuals interested in organizing a more specialized group of talks within or closely related to these areas are encouraged to submit ideas.

In addition to symposia, the organizing committee is also interested in supporting workshops regarding chemical safety, instrumentation and chemical education at the high school chemistry level. Parties interested in running workshops should submit workshop titles and descriptions to the program chair.

To participate as symposium or workshop organizer in the 2017 CERMACS please respond to the program chairs with a tentative title and brief description of the proposed symposia to cermacs2017@gmail.com.

Symposia and workshop titles along with potential organizers will be vetted by the 2017 CERMACS Organizing Committee.

If you know of a chemical professional who may be interested in this level of participation, the committee would greatly appreciate your forwarding this Email to that individual.

Best Regards,
Dan Lawson
Program Chair

Mark Benvenuto
General Chair
