Call for abstracts


Dear faculty and students, The Meeting-in-Miniature (MIM) of the Cleveland Section of the ACS has become a much-anticipated event in the calendar of many local undergraduate and graduate researchers. MIM is a great way to showcase your work and is effective preparation for presenting at an ACS
national meeting or regional meetings. It is also a great opportunity to meet chemistry and biochemistry faculty and students from neighboring colleges and universities.

MIM 2018 will be held on the afternoon and evening of Wednesday 28 March 2018 at Oberlin College in Oberlin OH. Registration for the meeting is free. The half-day program will begin in the mid-afternoon with parallel sessions of 20- min talks (including 5 min of Q&A) with a plenary lecture by Emily Pentzer of Case Western Reserve University and dinner to follow
in the new Hotel at Oberlin. We look forward to a large turnout and a great meeting.

Meeting registration and submission of abstracts to be considered for oral presentation is now open. Registration and abstract submission should be performed online using the link
zkGHgmPZYdBYh. Abstracts have a 200-word limit and required information includes: title of presentation, presenting author, mentor of presenting author, department and university affiliation, email of presenting author, category (undergraduate, graduate, other), division (analytical, biochemistry, inorganic/materials, organic, physical), and abstract. The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts is 1 March 2018. Send any question or concern to Zoey Hua at Meeting details
as they develop will be posted at the Cleveland ACS.

Faculty mentors and other chemistry professionals are invited to serve as judges and session chairs for the oral presentations. Volunteers should email Rob Thompson at with the subject "MIM volunteer".
