The East Central Illinois Section of the American Chemical Society extends an invitation for all students and professionals in the chemical sciences to attend the 6th Annual ECI ACS Undergraduate Research Conference, featuring undergraduate research posters and oral presentations. Due to concerns regarding COVID-19 and to provide accessible opportunities for students to share their work, the conference will take place virtually on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021, via the GatherTown platform. This year, we are excited to include virtual networking opportunities with our sponsoring organizations and a Keynote Speaker. Our 2021 Keynote Address will be provided by Ms. Patricia Simpson, Director of Academic Advising and Career Services at UIUC. After the keynote address, students will be able to give poster and oral presentations in different sessions throughout the day.
All undergraduates involved in research in the chemical sciences and related fields are invited to submit abstracts and present a virtual poster or virtual oral presentation. All abstracts will be accepted, and we encourage submissions in a wide variety of research topics. Registration is now open and the deadline for abstract submission is Nov. 5, 2021.
