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.

Creative Problem Solving in Chemical Research Tanya Fogg   |   added on Apr 05, 2011    |    United States Chemists are expected to solve problems that involve obtaining new research ideas, improving processes and production in industry, or dealing with problems that arise during research. Too often, we apply a random process or follow the same way - and receive poor results. Dr. Bill Mattson, will engage you in an interactive pre

Cheers! The Chemistry of Wine Tanya Fogg   |   added on Mar 17, 2011    |    United States The French say, “The truth is in the wine.” It is also said that a meal without wine is like a day without sunshine. Recent studies suggest that moderate wine consumption is beneficial to health.

Optimizing Workplace Across Five Generations of Scientists - Challenges and Rewards Tanya Fogg   |   added on Mar 17, 2011    |    United States To visualize molecules, do you use a ball-and-stick-kit or modeling software? In today's workforce, most of us work with colleagues that span at least three generations and each has different assumptions about how the world works. The likelihood that we'll misunderstand a co-worker’s behavior is high.
Topic: acs webinar, cross-generational, generation gap Audience: mid-career, students, intern, graduate student, first-year, senior chemist

CSI Reality: Chemistry in the Crime Labs Tanya Fogg   |   added on Feb 16, 2011    |    United States Despite TV shows, forensic chemists need to be well-versed in the widest array of analytical technologies and must quickly adapt proven methods to new types of samples. Dr. Jason Schaff will discuss the different disciplines within forensic chemistry and provide an in-depth perspective of day-to-day life in a forensic lab.
