10th Annual ENY ACS Undergraduate Research Symposium ~ April 18, 2018 ~ Siena College

The 10th Annual ENY ACS Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held at Siena College, Loudonville, NY on April 18, 2018.

Abstracts will be accepted electronically; please access the submission form here or at the following link: https://tinyurl.com/ENYACSUGRS. The deadline for abstract submission is March 30, 2018. Following the abstract deadline, both presenting students and faculty advisors will receive further details about the symposium via email.

Posters should be no larger than 30"x40" and may be on any research topic within the chemical sciences. The research projects are not required to be complete by the time of the presentation, but authors should be prepared to discuss their work and how they plan to finish it. Poster presentations will occur during the social hour (5:30 - 6:30 PM) and oral presentations will follow dinner and the business meeting (typically 8:00 - 9:00 PM). We have time for 3 to 4 oral presentations; requests for oral presentations are handled on a first come, first served basis with an emphasis of choosing speakers representing as many academic institutions as possible.

Please feel free to forward this invitation and the registration link to your colleagues who advise undergraduate researchers that may have interest in participating. For more information, please e-mail Eric Davenport at the address below.

We look forward to seeing everyone in April!
