Symposium on Global Climate Change – Rochester, NY
Symposium on Global Climate Change – Sponsored by the ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry
American Chemical Society’s North-Eastern Regional Meeting (ACS-NERM) at Rochester, NY from 30th Sep – 3rd Oct 2012.
Comprehensive scientific assessments indicate that Global Climate Change (GCC) is real. Yet, the public support to mitigate the effects early and effectively is muted. Given the complexity involved, the scientific community has had difficulty and frustration in communicating the science behind GCC to the public. This symposium aims to reinforce understanding and generate continued urgency on communication about GCC. The symposium will consist of keynote lectures and provide a platform for exchange of recent research data on GCC.
To promote a regional focus and to encourage participation in the symposium, the ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry has instituted one senior lecture award and two young investigator awards. The senior lecture award consists of a recognition plaque, $1000, and travel expenses up to $1,500. Each young investigator award will consist of a recognition plaque, $500, plus travel expenses up to $1000. It is also expected that the proceedings of the symposia will be collated and published on the divisional website.
To apply for the award:
A) Submit your abstract (http://nerm.sites.acs.org/) by August 24 2012,
B) e-mail your brief bio-sketch and a one page write-up on your accomplishments to the symposium organizer (Gopal Coimbatore or Tracy Williamson) no later than August 24, 2012.
