2016 Meeting-in-Miniature (MIM) of the ACS Cleveland Section will be held on Monday, March 7th at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland. MIM provides a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows and industry professionals to present their chemistry research, and to network among the scientific community. By preceding the ACS Spring National Meeting and Exposition, MIM serves as a platform for Cleveland ACS presenters to sharpen their presentation skills in preparation for the ACS National Meeting. In an effort to expand the breadth of chemistry research showcased at MIM 2016, the organizers are looking forward to bringing aboard students from a number of community colleges, and researchers from area industries.
The half day program of MIM 2016 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 2016 Plenary Lecture, “Everybody Learns Russian Organic Chemistry”, will be delivered by Prof. David E. Lewis of the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire.
MIM 2016 couldn’t have come at a more exciting time for all chemists, as we celebrate a major milestone; the completion of seventh period in the periodic table of elements. Days before the dawn of 2016, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUAC) announced the verification of discoveries of several elements, including the 118th, completing the seventh period.
