Highlights for 2014 national meeting of world’s largest scientific society

Washington, DC | Posted on July 8th, 2014

Journalists registering for the American Chemical Society's (ACS') 248th National Meeting & Exposition this summer will have an abundance of material to mine for their news stories. Nearly 12,000 presentations are planned on a broad range of topics from health to the environment. The meeting, one of the largest scientific conferences of the year, will be held August 10-14 in San Francisco.

The link for press registration is https://www.xpressreg.net/register/acsf084/media/reginfo.asp .

The theme of the meeting is "Chemistry & Global Stewardship," but numerous sessions also will focus on breakthroughs in energy research, as well as medicine, food and the environment. Among the planned symposia are:

• Trends in Cooking Science
• Advances in Food Allergen Research; Identification, Detection, Characterization and Mitigation
• Evolving Science and Environmental Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing
• New Approaches To Difficult-To-Drug Targets and Diseases
• Self-Healing and Shape Memory Materials
• Nature's Second Act: Revisiting Natural Products
• Advances in Nanomedicine
• Advances in Wine Research

The ACS Office of Public Affairs will operate a press center in the Moscone Center. It will include a press conference room and a news media workroom fully staffed to assist in arranging interviews. The press center will have wireless Internet access, computers, a photocopier and refreshments.

Embargoed copies of press releases and a press conference schedule will be available in late July. Reporters planning to cover the meeting from their home bases will have access to the press conferences over the Internet through Ustream.
