The NESACS Local Organizing Committee for the Northeast Regional Meeting (NERM) serves as a liaison between NESACS and the Northeast Region of the ACS, Inc. (NERACS), which is the governance and financial overseer of NERM. Our committee communicates information about NERM and other specialized ACS meetings to the NESACS membership via postings on the website, articles in The Nucleus, and announcements to the NESACS Board of Directors. We assist in the development of plans for the organization and sponsorship of future NERM’s by NESACS within its geographic boundaries. The Chair of the Committee serves as the NESACS representative to the NERACS Board of Directors.
The 2023 Northeast Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society (NERM 2023) will be held from Wednesday to Saturday, June 14-17, 2023. The meeting will be hosted by the Northeastern Section of the ACS with most of the technical sessions and special events to be held at Northeastern University in Boston.
The theme of the meeting, Chemistry: Crossing Intersections, will be reflected in the technical program featuring research that crosses and transcends the traditional boundaries of chemistry and chemical engineering. For example, there will be symposia on sustainable syntheses and processes, chemistry in the life sciences, the digital world of chemistry, chemistry advancing industry, chemical education research, and communities within chemistry. NERM 2023 will feature poster sessions highlighting student research, workshops designed by and for high school chemistry teachers, a graduate school fair, an Exposition featuring a Career Navigator LIVE job fair, professional development workshops, an Awards Banquet, and much, MUCH more!
Call for NERM 2023 Symposia. Proposals for symposia aligned with the meeting theme are due November 4, 2022. We encourage all interested chemists and chemical engineers to submit symposium proposals on cross-disciplinary topics such as those described above. We are especially interested in receiving proposals that include a diverse group of presenters and session chairs.
On behalf of the NERM 2023 Organizing Committee and NESACS, we look forward to your participation in this event.
The main theme of NERM 2023 is Chemistry: Crossing Intersections and conveys the meeting’s focus on recent discoveries by chemists and chemical engineers partnering with colleagues from other disciplines to make a lasting impact on the world. These discoveries have led to significant advances in all aspects of our lives and there will be several themes evident throughout NERM 2023.
Supporting themes for NERM 2023:
- Sustainable Chemistry and Processes
- Chemistry and the Life Sciences
- Digital World of Chemistry
- Communities in Chemistry
- Chemistry Advancing Industry
We are currently inviting the submission of session proposals from all areas of chemistry and chemical engineering as we build an exciting program! NERM 2023 will have approximately 10 concurrent technical sessions plus poster sessions with topics of interest to participants from industry, academia, and undergraduate and graduate students.
The Committee seeks volunteers to be part of the team that is currently involved in the organization and sponsorship of a NERM within NESACS to be held during 2023. Please contact the NERM Chair if you are interested.
