On June 21-23, 2011 we will host the 15th annual Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference in Washington, DC and coupled with the Presidential Green Chemsirty Challenge Awards. This year we will also be colocating with the 5th International Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry - a unified program. Our theme is to reinforce the International Year of Chemistry with programming focused green chemistry for a sustinable future. In additon to thematic sessions across a spectrum of the chemcial enterptise, there will be a workshop for undergraduates and possibly a science writers workshop. Working in conjunction with our parent organization, ACS, we plan to conduct significant programming throughout the year to support IYC with materials coming from the conference proceedings as well.
