YOUR MEETING REGISTRATION entitles you to a wide range of programming, including 1,086 scientific sessions, invited symposia, poster sessions, special lectures and events, award presentations, workshops, and the exposition. Interact with chemical scientists from around the world by participating in social events, networking opportunities, exhibitor sessions, and educational activities, with many events offered at no additional charge. Certain workshops, short courses, and ticketed events require a separate entry fee, as indicated in this program.
