Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG)

To more completely meet the informational and professional development needs of our members and meeting attendees, ACS established the Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG) to coordinate national meeting programming that emphasizes current critical scientific areas, particularly those with a multidisciplinary nature.

MPPG has two subcommittees:

MPPG's goal is to select themes according to a timeline that will give sufficient lead time to the divisions to plan compelling, relevant programming. Members of MPPG will identify and select theme organizers who have substantial prominence in the thematic field and skill in organizing high-level scientific symposia.

Advanced Materials, Technologies, Systems & Processes is the theme for the 253rd ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, CA, in April 2016.

Strategic Plan for 2016

ACS invites all chemical scientists and engineers to join us in achieving this vision.
