Read on for new details on the upcoming Christians in Chemistry meetup at the ACS San Diego Meeting. In our goal of connecting Christian academics to the communities they need, we often publicize meetups of Christians at various conferences. The informal group “Christians in Chemistry” has an upcoming meeting at the ACS San Diego National Meeting August 26, and they asked us to share the information with ESN readers. If you are organizing a meetup of Christians at a conference, email us at ESN. We would love to publicize it, circumstances permitting. (Image: San Diego Convention Center)
Plans are well underway for a gathering of the very informal group “Christians in Chemistry”. There were about 50 present for the last such meeting (Orlando ACS). At the ACS San Diego National Meeting, Lord Willing, we will gather at 5:30 PM August 26 for a one hour time of sharing. The location will be the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, just to the northwest of the main convention center. Our room number is not yet available, but it will be the same room in which the symposium “Computational Quantum Chemistry: From Promise to Prominence” will be held. By no means required, but some of the folks attending will go out for dinner at an inexpensive nearby restaurant. Suggestions welcome.
Two distinguished speakers will share for about 20 minutes each. The first is Robert Gilliard, gifted synthetic inorganic chemist and Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. Our second person sharing will be a distinguished theoretical chemist, Professor Peter Gill, of the University of Sydney, Australia. Please share with chemists who will be attending the ACS San Diego Meeting. Undergraduate and graduate students are warmly welcomed!
