In this section, your ideas for IYC2011 can start to become reality. Here, you can submit activities for consideration and, after a short review, they will be listed below and any related events will populate the IYC calendar. Activities listed here have a clearly defined theme and describe how, when, and where they will take place.

If you are not quite ready to submit a plan, keep working at it and come back soon. And remember, you can always browse and search this forum to find out what others are planning and even add your own comments to the discussion.

Ten Commandments for being a Successful Scientist Tanya Fogg   |   added on Apr 05, 2011    |    United States Some believe the successful were simply “lucky,” but what is luck? Luck, some define, is when preparation meets opportunity. And many weary scientists have wondered how to find that opportunity. Look no further – join ACS Webinars™ and our speaker, Professor Darren Griffin, of the University of Kent, UK, as he reveals ten e
