The American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute (ACS GCI) is pleased to announce that it will hold its 22nd annual scientific meeting June 18-20, 2018 in Portland, Oregon. The Green Chemistry & Engineering (GC&E) Conference Advisory Committee will be issuing a call for symposia soon. The deadline for symposium submission in October 6, 2017. Notifications will be sent in November 2017.
The committee will be looking for proposals which include perspectives from basic scientists, industrial scientists, business leaders, students, government, NGOs, etc. Proposal submitters should creatively design their sessions to be highly interactive (e.g., facilitate lively discussion; include sufficient time for Q&A, rapid-fire sessions, workshop-based learning, debates, etc.). Attendees should leave sessions with clear ideas for how they can use the information disseminated in the session in their professional careers. Submitters are asked to describe how these outcomes will be achieved in the session and should provide potential speakers and/or topics of presentations.
