Check the call for papers in Chemical and Engineering News or the ACS website for abstract deadlines. Submit your abstract via the the new MAPS (Meeting Abstracts Programming System) by the indicated date.

NOTE: The MAPS (Meeting Abstracts Programming System) system is built and maintained by Scholar One, owned by Thompson Reuters. We believe it will be a significant improvement over PACS. Also, it may be a bit more difficult for the Program Chairs to add late abstracts with the new system (at least initially), so it is all that much more important that you get your abstracts in on time, if not early.

If you do not have access to a computer for use in the submission, contact the program chair by prior to the indicated date.


UPCOMING MEETINGS AND HIST DEADLINES

Offerings are subject to change. Check the HIST website (http://www.scs.illinois.edu/~mainzv/HIST/) for updates.

Submit your abstract via the new online Meeting Abstracts Programming System (MAPS) by November 7th, 2016. If you do not have access to a computer for use in the submission or are having difficulties in submitting your abstract, contact Seth Rasmussen (seth.rasmussen@ndsu.edu). Check the call for papers in Chemical and Engineering News or www.acs.org for changes in the abstract deadlines.

HIST Past Presidents Symposium Series

The HIST Past Presidents Symposium series is designed to explore the professional and scientific legacy of some of our former ACS Presidents. Symposia are planned for National ACS meetings in the geographical area associated with the President to be honored. Past symposia have honored Henry Eyring (Salt Lake City, Spring 2009), Anna Jane Harrison (Boston, Fall 2011), Mary Good (New Orleans, Spring 2013), Helen Free (Indianapolis, Fall 2013), William Carroll (Dallas, Spring 2014), Attila Pavalth (San Francisco, Fall 2014), Henry Hill (Boston, Fall 2015), Charles C. Price (Philadelphia, Fall 2016) and Daryl Busch (Washington, DC, Fall 2017). Future symposia are under development. If you would like to be a part of any of these future symposia, please contact Jan Hayes at janan.hayes@yahoo.com for more information on plans and participation.
