We are a group of graduate students in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Washington. We are organizing and facilitating a symposium focused on international collaborations in chemistry, to be presented at the 248th ACS National Meeting, which will take place in August 2014 in San Francisco, CA. We intend for this symposium to:

  • highlight the influence of international collaboration on research in chemistry intended to benefit the world at large;
  • uphold the 248th ACS National Meeting‘s theme of Chemistry and Global Stewardship;
  • encourage dialogue to further and support international collaboration among speakers, graduate students, and other symposium attendees;
  • demonstrate equal representation among invited speakers, consistent with the goals of the committee’s affiliated student group, Women in Chemical Sciences at the University of Washington.
