MPPG Meeting Format Subcommittee Responsibilities

The purpose of the MPPG Meeting Format Subcommittee is to seek, encourage and derive new meeting formats that provide more benefit for members of the Society. It is MPPG’s hope that many of the new format ideas will come from the general membership of the ACS. These new formats could be changes in present meeting format (national or local) or entirely new venues.

New format ideas:

  • Poster sessions interspersed with regular symposia formats.
  • Joint programming with other national societies during the annual meeting. A good example of this was the joint program held with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers in New Orleans.
  • Joint programming of a division with divisions from other societies at a venue other than the national meeting.
