ChemComm Symposium: Global Challenges in Chemistry

12 April 2019

Six members of the ChemComm editorial board will be visiting the ANU, hosted by RSC Director Penny Brothers (also a member of the ChemComm editorial board). This one day symposium held during the teaching break will feature talks by board members, local ECR colleagues, a poster session and social events. More to come, please save the date! See http://www.rsc.org/journals-books-databases/about-journals/chemcomm/ for editorial board members.

The event is sponsored by ChemComm and the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) and will feature international speakers who are members of the ChemComm editorial board, along with early career local speakers and a poster session to which all are invited to participate.

The event is free, and coffee, lunch and a post event mixer are included in the program.  Registration is required, which also provides information for poster presenters.
