The Catalysis Club of Chicago (CCC) will hold its first annual Young Scientist Symposium virtually on Friday January 14, 2022. The program is scheduled to begin at 9:30 AM and end at 5 PM central time. We will hold a young scientist focused symposium in the winter in addition to the traditional spring symposium at the end of our annual cycle. This symposium will feature eight student/postdoc speakers, a poster session, and both technical and career focused keynote speakers, Prof. Dave Flaherty (UIUC) and Dr. Eric Stangland (Dow) respectively. The spring symposium in May will feature additional keynote lectures and more time for networking but will not have a poster session. With this format, we aim to increase our ability to highlight the amazing work performed by students and postdoctoral researchers in the CCC Geographic area, while providing an additional opportunity to network and get to know members from other institutions within the club.
There will be no registration fee for the 2022 Young Scientist Symposium, however, membership is required for attendance for those in the CCC area (IN, IL, WI, MN). Membership is optional for those outside the CCC area. Membership dues can be paid here: https://catalysisclubchicago.com/join-renew-membership/
