Theme: Chemistry and Global Stewardship

Giving scientific professionals a platform to present, publish, discuss and exhibit the most exciting research discoveries and technologies in chemistry and its related disciplines. The meeting will facilitate networking opportunities, career development and placement, and provide companies an opportunity to exhibit products and services to a targeted audience.

The Exposition will give attendees the chance to meet more than 250 exhibitors, many of whom are showcasing new technological developments. A number of exhibitors also offer free workshops during the meeting so attendees can learn more about these state-of-the-art technologies.

The theme Chemistry and Global Stewardship is focused on global aspects of the chemical enterprise related to sustainability of world resources, including green chemistry, the globalization of chemistry, and the responsibilities and opportunities chemists have to serve the broader public.

In particular, divisional programming and special themed symposia will cover and discuss the role and interplay of science, technology, innovation, and economic development in world stewardship of precious, limited resources while providing physical and economic security for all world citizens.
