Students who complete registration or submit abstracts after March 16 at 5pm will be charged a late fee of $10.

Registration Information

Each attendee must register individually. The system cannot process mass registrations from institutions. 

You must complete all registration questions in one sitting, as the system does not save work in progress, only completed applications.

Students:  If you think your institution is paying your registration fee, be sure to verify this in advance. When you register, you must provide the name, title and email address of the person who approved payment. If you or your advisor is a member of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and your research is in chemistry or biochemistry, ACS will pay for your registration if you are one of the first seven students to register from your institution! BUT YOU NEED TO SELECT THE ACS SCHOLARSHIP OPTION. Please check with your advisor whether your department or ACS should be invoiced before you register. If neither your institution nor ACS is paying your fee, please be prepared to pay $75 when you register.

A $10 late fee will apply to all registrations completed after March 16 at 5:00pm.

Student Participants:  Be sure to have the following information ready when you register.

your advisor's name and email address

whether you'll be doing an oral or poster presentation

your presentation title and abstract (250 words max.)
