Meeting-in-Miniature (MIM) of the Cleveland Section has become a much anticipated event in the calendar of many local graduate, undergraduate, postdoctoral and industrial researchers. Researchers find MIM to be a stepping stone for the presenting their work at the ACS Spring National Meeting that follows the MIM. MIM also provides a great opportunity to network among the scientific community.
The 2017 MIM of will be held on Monday, March 13th at the Main Campus of Cleveland State University. Stemming from a strategic planning initiative, the of ACS Cleveland Section is on a mission to expand the breadth of chemistry research showcased at MIM 2017. Local area students from a number of community colleges, and researchers from area industries will also be invited to present at this year’s conference.
The half day program of MIM 2017 starting early afternoon will accommodate oral presentations of 15min and 5min questions by audience in each of its sections. Graduate and undergraduate presentations will be recognized with certificates and may be eligible for monetary awards. MIM 2017 will also include a Plenary Lecture, followed by dinner buffet.
