Technical Program

A diverse program of technical presentations – oral and poster – is being developed. Including, 

  • A plenary address by Dr. H.N. Cheng, 2020 American Chemical Society President-Elect;

  • Over 30 symposia or invited sessions covering the main branches of chemistry;

  • A program geared to undergraduates, including a symposium and networking opportunities; and

  • Career Navigator and professional development tracks.


This list will grow as the program develops.  The 2020 Joint SWRM - SERMACS Regional Meeting will have programming for all levels of chemical professionals.  Come check us out.
