Dear ACS CATL Division Members,
The call for abstracts is now open, and we encourage you to submit abstracts for the Fall 2021 National Meeting. The descriptions of the Fall 2021 symposia can be accessed here.
As of now, the ACS is moving forward with plans for a hybrid Fall 2021 meeting that consists of both in-person and live-streamed presentations followed by live Q&A. This moves us closer to everyone’s preferred format while still allowing participation from those that may be unable to travel to Atlanta either due to cost or pandemic-related restrictions. We are cautiously optimistic about an in-person meeting in August, but we ask that everyone remain flexible since the situation is fluid, and it may become necessary to revert to a virtual-only meeting if travel restrictions persist through the summer and fall. Many of you surely have questions about this format and, particularly, about registration fees. Unfortunately, we have not yet received guidance on this topic. We will relay additional information as it becomes available.
We encourage junior faculty, students, and postdocs to participate in the CATL technical program. For the Fall 2021 meeting, the CATL division recommends individuals give one or two oral presentations with the objective of having a greater number of our members and especially young scientists share their work.
