248th ACS National Meeting & Exposition

August 10-14, 2014 | San Francisco, CA • Chemistry & Global Stewardship

THANK YOU! for making ACS San Francisco a great success! Our largest Fall meeting since 2002. Over 15K attendees, over 7K meeting mobile app downloads, a standing ovation in ACS Council for Bill Carroll and Madeleine Jacobs, outgoing Board Chair & Exec Director. A wonderful Chemluminary awards on a starry San Francisco night, full Kavli and Plenary lectures showcase green chemistry. Our new abstract submission portal MAPS made its debut. And, as always, our community came together and there was great chemistry. We would like to take this moment to acknowledge all the ACS staff, volunteers, contributors, exhibitors and most importantly, presenters and posters who made this possible. Safe travels all and see you in Denver!
