Solicitation of Symposia for the 251st ACS National Meeting & Exposition in San Diego

Greetings from the Program Committee of the Division of Chemical Education!

Even though we hope you are getting ready to come join us for the Boston meeting in August, we are also working behind the scenes, gearing up for the Spring 2016 meeting in San Diego.

This note is to solicit your suggested symposia - something that you might like to organize for this meeting. Please see the list of sessions that are already planned so that your idea doesn't come too close to one of those. While any compelling idea is appreciated, we are especially interested to receive sessions that match the overarching theme for the meeting - Computational Chemistry.

If you have an idea, please send it, in the next week or two, to San Diego meeting co-chairs Denyce Wicht and Iona Black.

Best wishes,

Irv Levy - DivCHED Program Chair (
Iona Black - San Diego meeting co-chair (
Denyce Wicht - San Diego meeting co-chair (
