CSMC will be a SACNAS 2014 in Los Angeles on 16-18 October

If you plan to attend SACNAS in Los Angeles next week, the CSMC and it's sister Centers for Chemical Innovation (CCI) have a lot of activities planned! Visit our booth #361.

Friday 17th October

10:15 - 11:45 AM CHEMISTRY: THE CENTRAL SCIENCE

Chair: Prof. Nicholas Hud, Georgia Institute of Technology; Center for Chemical Evolution
Chemistry is considered the central science that connects the physical sciences with life and applied sciences. This session demonstrates the broad applications of chemistry research being carried out in several NSF Centers for Chemical Innovation. These include chemistry research on origins of life, the space-time limit, sustainable energy, and more.

Los Angeles Convention Center 306AB

 

6:00 - 8:30 PM DIVERSITY IN CHEMISTRY

Sponsored by the Center for Selective C–H Functionalization and the Organizatiion for Cultural Diversity in Chemistry. This symposium brings together three leading chemists from the University of California system to discuss the scientific advances in their research groups. Prof. Javier Read de Alaniz (UCSB), Prof.

Richmond Sarpong (UC Berkeley) and Prof. Hilary Coller (UCLA) will be speaking.

Los Angeles Trade Tech College, Aspen Hall/TE 111

 

Saturday 18th October

2:00 - 3:30 PM EXPANDING YOUR HORIZONS THROUGH SUMMER RESEARCH PROGRAMS

Chair: Eve Perara, PhD, Director of Diversity, Education and Outreach, Center for Enabling New Technologies Through Catalysis (CENTC) Find the best summer research program for you. We will present a wide range of undergraduate research programs through academia, research centers, government labs and industry. Learn how to prepare a competitive application and make the most of your experience.

3:45 - 5:15 PM IT TAKES A VILLAGE: How chemists engineers, and physicists come together to create the next generation of electronics.

Chair: Bettye Maddux, PhD, Managing Director, Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry

To keep up with growing demand and meet global needs for smaller, faster, efficient electronics and energy devices, scientists/engineers need to work together on sustainable solutions. This session explores how researchers in the Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry are using fundamental scientific understanding to invent and advance these technologies.
