Dear ACS CATL Division Members,
It is time for submitting abstracts for the 2019 Fall National meeting, and also for Symposium Proposals for the 2020 Spring National Meeting. We are putting together strong programs for both meetings! We also have announcements at the end of this email about the upcoming national meeting.
Fall 2019 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS:
The Fall National Meeting is in San Diego, CA from August 25-29, 2019, with program chair Steven P. Crossley. The Abstract Deadline is March 25th. Please note that there will be no extensions to this abstract deadline, so please plan on submitting your abstracts in advance. The Fall 2019 Symposium Advertisements describing each symposia are here in single pdf form and here in many pdfs form.
The list of symposia and abstract submission can be found here: https://callforpapers.acs.org/SanDiego2019/CATL
To submit an abstract, you can also go to:
2) Login with your ACS ID
3) Click “Submission”, then “Create New Submission”
4) Choose “CATL" and follow the instructions on screen.
SPRING 2020 CALL FOR SYMPOSIUM PROPOSALS:
We are now accepting symposium Proposals for the Spring meeting (March 22-26 in Philadelphia, PA), with program chairs of David W. Flaherty and Aditya “Ashi” Savara. Proposals on all topics of catalysis (heterogeneous catalysis, homogeneous catalysis and biocatalysis) are welcomed. If you are interested in organizing a symposium, please send a symposium title to Ashi Savara at firstname.lastname@example.org, and request a symposium proposal template. The template will be due May 29, 2019. Members who have never organized a symposium before should not be afraid to propose one: we will give you guidance, and it is an opportunity for you to see more research within your field and to raise your visibility.
ACS CATL RECEPTION AND SPONSORSHIP ANNOUNCEMENTS:
There will be an ACS CATL Division Reception with Drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the Spring National Meeting. The reception is co-sponsored by Nature Catalysis, Nature Communications, Communications Chemistry and Scientific Reports, and will occur on the Monday evening of the meeting (April 1st) in Room W315B of the Convention Center from 7:30 to 8:30 PM. Sponsorship level: $3000 from Nature Research.
ACS CATL is also receiving $2000 of sponsorship from ExxonMobil, as a result of a joint symposium which will be located in ENFL titled “Celebrating 50 Years of ExxonMobil's Corporate Strategic Research Laboratories: A View Forward from a Retrospective”.
Please, make sure that nomination packages conform to the requirements described above. Incomplete packages will not be considered.
A jury comprising experts from academia, industry and national laboratories selects the awardees. The jury members are asked to disclose any potential conflicts of interest and to disqualify themselves without prejudice when a conflict exists. The jury is appointed by the Chair of the ACS Catalysis Division who seeks input from the Chair of the Awards Committee and other members of the ACS Catalysis Division Executive Committee. The identity of the jury members is confidential and only known to the President of the ACS Catalysis Division. Members of the jury are asked to rank the candidates and provide justification for selecting the top three candidates. After the first vote the jury may be asked to consider for a second time the candidacy of the top two candidates in selecting an awardee.
Submit your nominations for the 8th ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science. The award, cosponsored by the CATL Division and the journal ACS Catalysis, will honor the contributions of an individual or a collaborative team for groundbreaking research in heterogeneous catalysis that strengthens connections between catalysis subdisciplines and has a profound impact on catalysis as a whole.
The 2019 winner will receive a plaque, $3,000 award, and travel and accommodations funding of up to $1500 to attend and present at a symposium in his/her honor at the 258th ACS National Meeting.
Additional details about nomination and eligibility requirements, as well as the nomination form can be found here.
Nominations are due November 1, 2018
If you have any questions, please send them to Award.ACSCatalysis@acs.org

Submit your abstracts to the symposiums at the Fall 2018 ACS meeting in Boston, MA, August 19-23. There are 18 CATL division-sponsored symposiums, as well as several other symposiums co-sponsored with other ACS Divisions. Deadline to submit is March 26!
Professor Nicholas J. Turner of the University of Manchester, U.K., is the recipient of the 2018 ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science in recognition of his work in engineering of enzymes for application as biocatalysts. Co-sponsored by the ACS Division of Catalysis Science & Technology and the ACS Publications journal ACS Catalysis, the Lectureship honors the contributions of an individual or a collaborative team for groundbreaking research that strengthens connections between catalysis subdisciplines and has a profound impact on catalysis as a whole. The 2018 ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science will be presented at the 256th ACS National Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. Read more about this year's winner here.
Submit your abstracts to the symposiums at the Fall 2017 ACS meeting in Washington, DC, August 20-24. There are 16 CATL division-sponsored symposiums, as well as several other symposiums co-sponsored with other ACS Divisions. Deadline to submit is March 24!
