The East Central Illinois Section of ACS extends an invitation for all undergraduates and professionals in the chemical sciences to attend the Second Annual ECI Undergraduate Research Conference. This conference will be held on October 14, 2017 in the Alice Campbell Alumni Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL.
This year's conference will feature three poster sessions and one oral presentation session. Undergraduates are eligible to apply to present. Most abstracts will be accepted and a wide variety of research topics will be considered. In addition, four outstanding abstracts will be selected to be presented as oral presentations. Abstract and oral presentation acceptances will be made shortly following the abstract submission deadline.
This event is co-hosted by the UIUC Undergraduate Student Chapter, the ECI Women Chemists Committee at UIUC, the ECI Younger Chemists Committee, and the SACNAS chapter at UIUC.
