24th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference – Call for symposia @ Seattle, WA
Jun 16 – Jun 18 all-day

The American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute (ACS GCI) is pleased to announce the 24th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference to be held from June 16–18, 2020 in Seattle, Washington, USA. The Conference Organizing Committee is issuing this call for symposia.

The Committee requests that all proposals reflect ACS GCI’s mission to advance the implementation of green and sustainable chemistry and engineering practices across the global chemistry enterprise. The overarching theme of the conference in 2020 is Systems-Inspired Design, highlighting design from a systems and life cycle perspective. As in previous years, the Committee is seeking proposals that span the breadth and depth of green and sustainable chemistry and engineering.

The Committee is seeking proposals that include diverse perspectives from academic, industrial, and government scientists; business leaders; students; NGO representatives, 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, etc.). Attendees should leave each session with a clear idea of how they can use session outcomes 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.

2021 American Chemical Society Spring National Meeting

The ACS Spring 2021 meeting will be held April 5-16 online. The CELL Division will be running 13 symposia, including

  • 3D printing frontiers in renewable and smart materials for future circular economy
  • A century of cellulose: The past, present and future of cellulose and renewable materials
  • Biomaterials, biofuels and biochemicals from lignocelluloses
  • Cellulose: The panacea for super materials in the future
  • Functionalization of nanocelluloses for electrical, optical, magnetic, barrier and topochemical properties
  • Historical perspectives on cellulose and other renewable materials
  • Lignin as a renewable substrate for polymers: From molecular understanding and isolation to targeted applications
  • Lignocellulosic biorefining: From in-silico to products
  • Nanocellulose from fundamentals to function
  • New horizons Young Investigators symposium
  • Pitch in lignocellulose materials for early career scientists
  • Raman spectroscopy applications in the field of celluloses and lignocellulose and their major components
  • Valorisation of renewable resources and residuals into new materials and multiphase systems

The meeting, originally planned as an in-person event in San Antonio, TX, March 2021 was transitioned to virtual as a result of the rapidly rising number of COVID-19 cases locally, nationally, and globally, and predictions for worsening conditions throughout the winter season. The virtual format was chosen out of concern for the health and safety of our members, staff, meeting attendees, and residents of San Antonio.

Registration will open by mid-January and remain open through the end of the meeting. All attendees and presenters will be required to register. Registration fees have been set at $99 for ACS members, $149 for non-members, and $29 for students and teachers. Unemployed, retired, and 50-year emeritus members will be able to register at no cost.

Abstract submissions is now open and will close on January 19, 2021. Any abstract submission queries can be directed to maps@acs.org.
