Believe it or not, it's already time to register for ACS's Spring 2023 National Meeting! PUNC will once again be hosting a symposium in the Colloids section, and everyone is encouraged to apply. This session is for faculty only, and while presenters do not need to be a member of PUNC, they are strongly encouraged to check out the group (so if you have a colleague you think would be a good fit, share our information). We had a great symposium last year, both with engaging research presented, and with wonderful audience attendance and participation.
Additionally, are you bringing students with posters? Colloids' is a very friendly group for undergrads to present, and if you submit the poster to our session in particular, they will be grouped with other PUNC members and their students at the poster session. I think I saw some of the best faculty engagement with students at our poster session last year than I've ever seen at ACS.
The sessions you are looking for are: "PUNC: Nanomaterials Research at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions" Please submit your student posters to our poster session, and faculty are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts for talks. Abstract deadline is October 17th.
I look forward to seeing folks' abstracts, and can't wait to see many of you at ACS!
