Divisions Issue Calls For Papers

Calls for papers for the fall 2008 ACS national meeting have been issued
Department: ACS News

THE PRELIMINARY PROGRAM for the meeting in Philadelphia (Aug. 17–21) will be published in the June 23 issue of C&EN; the technical program will be in the July 28 issue. The society bylaw governing presentation of papers appears below.

Deadline Dates for Abstract Submission

ACS's Online Abstract Submittal System (OASYS) opened on Jan. 28 for Philadelphia abstracts. Please visit OASYS at http://oasys.acs.org.

Note: The addresses for program chairs and symposium organizers are indicated only once in each listing.

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

ACS encourages submission of all abstracts via OASYS, but if you do not have Web access, abstract forms are available from all division secretaries, program chairs, and the ACS Dept. of Awards & Division Programs, 1155-16th St., N.W., Washington, DC 20036. Detailed instructions are included with the form; phone (202) 872-4401, fax (202) 776-8211, abstract@acs.org; Internet: chemistry.org/meetings/abstracts/abinfo.html. Forms and the "Handbook for Speakers" are also available from the Office of Society Services, (800) 227-5558.

(1)the symposium has as its primary focus significant scientific developments too recent 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 relevant Division 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.

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.

Abstracts due March 7.

Please submit abstracts using the Online Abstract Submittal System (OASYS) at oasys.acs.org/. The deadline for online submittals is Friday, March 7. If you do not have Web access, contact the program chairs before March 1.

Notes to authors:

1. Read the instructions for authors in OASYS; record your ID number and password immediately. Use these to reaccess your abstract if you need to edit it. This will help avoid duplicate submissions and simplify communications. Include your abstract number in all e-mail correspondence with the program chairs.

2. Take note of whether you are entering an abstract for an oral session or a poster session and make sure that you check the correct box when entering your abstract.

3.The graphics appear much clearer in the abstracts if images are submitted as a .GIF file saved directly from the drawing program.

4. If multiple papers are being submitted (especially if you are submitting abstracts to other divisions), please indicate this in the comments box so that scheduling conflicts can be avoided.

5. Special scheduling requests must be made when your abstract is submitted; there is no guarantee that your request can be honored.

6.Please capitalize only the first word in your title and other words for which capitalization is necessary (for example, name reactions).

7. The Sci-Mix Poster Session is a multidisciplinary poster session held on Monday evening. Posters for Sci-Mix are chosen by the program chair from among the poster abstracts entered for the regular poster sessions. If you are interested in presenting at both a regular poster session and Sci-Mix, please check the appropriate box when you enter your abstract.

Information on travel award grants for the Philadelphia ACS meeting is available on the Division of Organic Chemistry website at organicdivision.org. Individuals who apply for travel grants should first enter their own abstract(s) into OASYS and indicate the abstract number(s) on the award application.

Abstracts due April 14.

In addition to your presentation at Sci-Mix in the AEI interdisciplinary section, you may also submit the same title and abstract to a division program for presentation at one of their non-Sci-Mix poster sessions. In order to submit your abstract to a division, locate the appropriate division section in OASYS just as you located AEI and follow the normal procedure for submittal. Make sure that the title of your division submission has the prefix "AEI." Without this prefix, your paper will be considered a duplicate and OASYS will eliminate it automatically from the division submissions.
