THE COLD AND WINDY but architecturally beautiful city of Chicago will set the scene for the American Chemical Society's 233rd national meeting. The ACS president, 28 technical divisions, one secretariat, and three committees will host the original programming in 682 half-day oral sessions and 96 poster sessions. More than 9,400 papers will be presented.

One overarching theme selected by ACS President Katie Hunt and the Committee on Divisional Activities is "Sustainability of Energy, Food, and Water." This program consists of 47 sessions contributed by numerous divisions. Other symposia and events include "Sustainability and Chemistry: Tomorrow's Challenge for Today's Students" and presentation of Student Affiliates ACS Chapter Awards. This year's ACS national awards dinner and ceremony will be held on Tuesday evening, March 27. George M. Whitesides will deliver the Priestley Medal Address at this event; other winners will deliver their addresses throughout the meeting.

Special and social events, professional development programming, exhibitor workshops, short courses, C&EN-Chemjobs Career Fair activities, and student activities will also compete for your time and attention. The exposition will feature more than 250 exhibiting companies in more than 500 booths showcasing the firms' services; instruments; publications; and scientific software and computer hardware; as well as chromatographic, lab, and safety equipment in McCormick Place Lakeside Hall D from Monday morning through 1 PM on Wednesday.

ONLINE TECHNICAL PROGRAM. The technical program for the 233rd national meeting is available online at chemistry.org/meetings/chicago2007. You can search for divisions, secretariats, or committees; symposia; speakers; or keywords from abstracts as well as the multidisciplinary theme of sustainability. You can also plan your meeting itinerary using our Personal Scheduler software from the website.

ABSTRACTS (CD-ROM). Abstracts of all scientific sessions at the meeting can be purchased in CD-ROM format between Jan. 8 and March 29 through ACS Attendee Registration. The ACS member fee is $50 each, and the nonmember fee is $75 each. Attendees can pick up their abstracts on-site at any ACS Attendee Registration location during the meeting, March 24-29. You can also have your abstracts shipped to you if you place your order before March 2, pay an $8.00 postage fee per item, and provide a valid street address located within the U.S. or Canada. If you are not attending the meeting, you can purchase abstracts only from ACS Office of Society Services, Room 521, 1155-16th St., N.W., Washington, DC 20036; (800) 227-5558. Abstract CD-ROMs and their shipping costs are nonrefundable.

SPEAKER INSTRUCTIONS. All speakers, authors, and poster presenters must register and pay the appropriate registration fee to attend the meeting. Invited speakers should contact their symposium organizer or division program chair to clarify terms of their invitation.

All presenters should prepare for their presentation by checking the following details: the status of your abstract at oasys.acs.org/acs/233nm/oasys.htm (using your abstract ID number and password from your acceptance notice); mode of presentation (oral or poster); and the time, length, and location of your presentation. Plan your schedule to guarantee that you arrive in your presentation room no less than 30 minutes before your scheduled speaking time or set up your poster one hour before the scheduled start of the poster session. If you need to withdraw your presentation, please send a withdrawal notice to help@acs.org and contact your symposium organizer immediately.
