Symposia

Symposia at ACS meetings: The Division of Inorganic Chemistry (DIC) would like to solicit suggestions for symposia to be organized as part of the inorganic programming (INOR) at one of the 2018 national ACS meetings (see list of at the bottom of this page).  If you would like to suggest the organization of such a symposium at one of the 2018 ACS meetings, please submit your proposal no later than February 15th for consideration at our Spring Executive meeting (held during National Spring ACS meeting) and by July 29th for consideration at our Fall Executive Executive meeting (held during the National Fall ACS meeting).

Proposals should be sent to John Protasiewicz (protasiewicz@case.edu). Proposals are evaluated biannually, so there is an advantage to sending proposals in as early as possible (especially since some meetings can receive too many proposals). Your proposal, MUST be submitted using the ACSSymposiumFundingRequest-Updated 2017 (please use Acrobat for best results).

Symposia approved by the DIC executive committee will be financially supported according to the following scheme: Up to $2000 will be allocated to each half-day session scheduled on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday;  Up to $2500 will be allocated to each half-day session scheduled on Wednesday.  Funding, which will only be provided for the first four half-day sessions of each symposium, should be used to help defray the cost incurred by the speakers (registration and travel expenses).

The DIC welcomes the organization of symposia in honor of ACS awardees but does not provide financial support for such symposia.

Cross-listing of symposia at ACS meetings: If you represent one of the ACS divisions and would like to request that one of your symposia be cross-listed with INOR, please contact the DIC Chair prior to August 1, annually for symposia to be held at the Spring ACS meeting or prior to March 1, annually for symposia to be held at the Fall ACS meeting. Any request submitted after these deadlines will not be considered.

Please, make sure to include:

1) The topic of the symposium
2) The organizer(s) along with pertinent with contact details
3) The meeting at which you would like the symposium to be held
4) Names of invited speakers
5) A statement explaining how the symposium will impact inorganic chemistry
