he 43rd Western Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Pasadena, CA will be held Thu Nov 10 – Sat Nov 12, 2011.
While this meeting may be shorter than most, we have arranged an incredible diversity of symposia and plenary sessions presented by luminaries in chemistry, for Thursday and Friday, plus a special computational chemistry symposium on Saturday. Saturday also features our educators sessions covering elementary through college chemistry teaching as well as workshops on topics such as intellectual property.
We are featuring a comprehensive undergraduate program throughout the meeting including a poster session Friday evening and In The Fast Lane a career-focused “speed-dating” event where students meet informally with chemists from industry, academia, and government. Saturday will feature workshops on applying to graduate school and jobs in industry, and culminate in a free docent led tour of The Huntington Library.
