Graduate Student Research Symposium in Cheminformatics, Information Science, and Library Science, 246th American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition, Indianapolis, Indiana, September 8 – 12, 2013.
I invite graduate students and recent post-docs to consider submitting a paper for a symposium at the ACS Fall meeting that will highlight relevant research in cheminformatics, library science, or information science. The actual date for the symposium will be announced later. Please pass this announcement along to anyone who you think might be interested.Presenters will need to use the American Chemical Society’s online Program and Abstract Creation System (PACS) to submit an abstract by March 18. You do not have to be an ACS member to create an account for PACS, but if you already have a login for the ACS site, you can use that. PACS will open for the September conference on January 21.

Need Research Help?
Request a one of one Research Consultation with librarian.
A Research Consultation is a one-on-one appointment with a librarian for extensive, in-depth research assistance. We will do our best to match you with a librarian who has some expertise in the subject area of your research.
Appointments are generally scheduled between 8 am through 6 pm Monday through Friday, but exceptions may be made if there are extenuating circumstances. We will attempt to accommodate distance learners by providing consultations via telephone, online chat, or email.
For shorter questions contact Ask a Librarian using IM, text, chat, and phone.
