Divisions Issue Calls for Papers

Calls for papers for the spring 2008 ACS national meeting, April 6-10, 2008, have been issued
Department: ACS News | Collection: Green Chemistry

THE PRELIMINARY PROGRAM for the meeting in New Orleans will be published in the Feb. 11, 2008, issue of C&EN; the technical program will be in the March 17, 2008, issue. The society bylaw governing presentation of papers appears below.

ACS's Online Abstract Submittal System (OASYS) is open for New Orleans abstracts. Please visit OASYS at oasys.acs.org.


Deadline Dates For Abstract Submission For The New OrleansNational Meeting, April 6-10, 2008
All dates are preliminary. The final dates approved by the divisions are on the abstract submission site: oasys.acs.org. Online abstract submission is preferred through OASYS. If online access is unavailable, submit abstracts to the appropriate division program chair, not to ACS.

Society Bylaw Governing Papers

Bylaw VI, Sec. 6, governs presentation at society meetings.

a. The term "paper" shall include any scientific presentation that can be reduced to writing.

b. No paper shall be presented at a national, regional, divisional, or other major meeting unless its title and author(s) appear on the program for the meeting. However, the president, with the concurrence of either the chair of the board of directors or the vice chair of the Council Policy Committee, may authorize an extraordinary symposium at a national meeting provided that

(1)the symposium has as its primary focus significant scientific developments toorecent for programming deadlines, and

(2)the request for authorization for such

a symposium has been made jointly by a member of the society and one of the following: the chair of a relevantdivision of the society, the chair of the Committee on Divisional Activities, or the chair of the Committee on Science.

c. No paper by a chemical scientist residing in the United States who is not a member of the society shall appear on the program of a national, regional, divisional, or other major meeting of the society unless it be a joint paper with one or more society members, or unless for a national, regional, or national-divisional meeting the author has been invited to present the paper at a symposium organized by a division of the society or by sections of the society, and the chair of such division or of the host section has certified to the executive director of the society prior to publication of the program that presentation by the author of such paper is important to the success of the symposium.

d. Rules corresponding to paragraphs a, b, and c of this section for a cooperative meeting shall be subject to agreement in advance between the organizations concerned but should conform, insofar as possible, to this bylaw and be subject to approval by the executive director of the society.

e. The society assumes no responsibility for the statements or opinions expressed by individuals in papers or discussions thereof.

f. The president shall have authority to exclude any paper from a program at any time prior to its scheduled presentation at a meeting of the society.

Board Regulation VII, No. 3, supplements Bylaw VI, Sec. 6, as follows:

a. Authorship of papers shall be accredited only to individuals and not to companies or laboratories.

b. Therapeutic Papers. It is the policy of the society to encourage the presentation of chemical papers with pharmacological and physiological aspects but to discourage presentation, by other than qualified clinical investigators, of papers in which clinical interpretations are the principal contribution. Divisions shall adhere to this policy when determining the acceptability of papers for their meeting programs. The divisions also are urged to exclude from their programs, and especially from any abstracts issued, statements recommending procedures for the treatment of human disease or announcement of any "cures" not confirmed by competent medical authority. Any author contributing a paper that includes discussion of the treatment of human disease must submit for review, by representatives of the appropriate division, a complete manuscript in addition to an abstract.

Researchers supported by grants or contracts from the U.S. Department of Defense are required to submit proposal abstracts and manuscripts for review by DOD, if so specified in the grant or contract. It is the responsibility of the authors to secure approval when necessary and to indicate to program chair that approval has been obtained or is expected.

NOTES: Submission of papers for presentation at an ACS meeting does not constitute submission for publication in an ACS journal. Regulations for the acceptance of papers to be presented as part of divisional meetings vary for each division. However, publication of papers in ACS journals is based upon the earliest date of receipt of the complete paper by the appropriate editor.

The council has empowered officers of divisions to request any paper in advance, so that it may be passed upon and an indication made to the author as to whether he or she is to read the entire paper or to abstract it to allow time for discussion.

Special attention should be given to the misuse of trade names, secret formulas, or secret processes in papers at national meetings of the society.

It is requested that authors avoid the use of trade names in papers presented at ACS meetings. Chairs are responsible for enforcing this policy.

Organizing committees from ACS and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) have developed select cosponsored symposia and topical sessions in addition to individual society programming. The select cosponsored symposia and topical sessions are in the areas of computation, entrepreneurship, fuel petrochemicals and petroleum, materials and nanotechnology, safety, and sustainability and alternative fuels. There will also be a showcase event highlighting the meeting theme, "Energy and the Environment."

Abstracts due Oct 28.
