ACS National Meeting Spring 2021

The American Chemical Society is announcing a fully virtual spring meeting.  ACS Spring 2021 will be held online April 5-16. This will enable a meaningful sharing of scientific information, while ensuring everyone’s safety – a core value of ACS – during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re committed to giving participants the most robust and rich experience possible by using current and customizable technology. The program will include 10 weekdays of live sessions, followed by two weeks of on-demand content, at the presenters’ discretion. This will allow for a maximum amount of science to be shared with the widest possible audience.

Get ready!

Abstract submission will open on December 16, 2020. Meeting registration will be available in January 2021. Information about abstracts, registration pricing, and more is available on the FAQ page of our website.
