Submit Symposia and Apply for Funding

Technical divisions and programming committees are encouraged to apply for the MPPG cosponsorship of symposia to support collaborative programming at the national meetings. The symposia must be aligned with the national meeting theme and have at least one cooperative cosponsor. ACS is also pleased to offer funds based on the size and duration of each theme-related, cooperatively cosponsored symposium. Details of timing for applications are on the symposium submission application:

About the Theme

The theme of this meeting is "Harnessing the Power of Data".

The meeting will explore how scientists can harness the power of data by covering pure and applied topics such as:

  • Chemical and biological data generation, curation, and access
  • Theoretical and algorithmic developments in machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • The use of data in machine learning and artificial intelligence applications.

We seek symposia proposals to all aspects of chemistry including:

  • Structural biology
  • Synthesis, design and planning
  • Drug design (docking, screening, ADME/Tox prediction, etc.)
  • Molecular ensemble generation
  • Design of quantum mechanics-derived molecular potentials
  • Applications in “omics" fields (e.g., genomics, metabolomics, etc.)
  • Materials design, etc.


The deadline for submitting symposia and requests for funding is Monday, March 13, 2023.

Symposia cosponsored by the Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG) will be listed for you to consider for your abstract submission when the call for abstracts opens.
