I am helping to organize a technical symposium for next June's ACS Northeast Regional Meeting in Ithaca, NY on the topic of Green Labs: Balancing Safety and Sustainability in the 21st Century Chemistry Lab. this is a similar topic to a symposium DCHAS sponsored in the San Francisco meeting last fall, which was quite successful.
The abstracts submission web site will open in January, but I wanted to start Northeast members of DCHAS thinking about submitting an abstract for this symposium. If you are interested in talking about new environmentally-friendly programs in your chemistry department or how lab sustainability considerations impact laboratory safety at your campus, please consider submitting an abstract. I'd appreciate hearing about your ideas before the holiday break so that I can send out reminders when the abstract submission process begins.
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
