Virtual Student Symposium

EAS SVSS Schedule now available

Thanks to all who submitted an abstract to be a part of the first ever Eastern Analytical Symposium September Virtual Student Symposium (EAS-SVSS). We look forward to your presenting your research to other students and analytical chemistry experts!

Our virtual symposium will take place on Monday, September 14th, on Zoom from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. Click here to download the program schedule including abstracts; see Program listed below for a quick summary.

A 1-hour networking event will take place immediately after the final presentation. Presentations must be 10-15 minutes (plus a 5-10 minute Q&A) with slides or a poster as acceptable formats.

Registration for this event is free and all presenting students and full-time students will be automatically preregistered to attend the 2020 Eastern Analytical Virtual Symposium & Exposition held November 16-19, 2020!
