November Teleconferencing

Program: The program for tonight is as follows (all times central):

6:00 – 7:00 pm:  Social Hour / Networking (Zoom Breakout Rooms: – no passcode needed)
7:00 – 8:00 pm:  Seminar (Zoom Webinar:  – passcode e-mailed to those who RSVP’d)

Zoom Details: The meeting links are provided above, and the password was sent to you via Evite. If you have any questions, please e-mail

Please update your Zoom (to version 5.3.0 or later) beforehand, so that you can use the feature that lets you self-select breakout rooms. For each meeting, we have prepared a Chicago-themed virtual background for you to use, if you are feeling particularly festive! Click on this link for a photograph (credit: Zoha Syed, Northwestern) of artwork being displayed at the Smart Museum on UChicago’s campus. Tune in on Tuesday night to learn how Laura is using theory and modeling approaches to research the properties and functions of MOFs to guide efforts to tune them to behave as “smart” materials! 

Social Hour and Networking: We cordially invite you to join us before the seminar to network with our seminar speaker and other meeting attendees in Zoom breakout rooms!
