Northern New York Local Section

Welcome to our Website

We hope that you will find this a useful place to find out about ACS activities in Northern New York, and to access many ACS resources.


In 2018 we are hosting a nanomaterials conference (NENM 2018) for the Northeast Regional ACS!  It will take place on June 1-3, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza Resort in Lake Placid, NY.  The meeting will not be a general one like a traditional NERM, but rather a meeting focused just on "Nanomaterials: Applications and Environmental Impacts."  Highlighted speakers include Prof. Vincent Rotello (U-Mass Amherst), Prof. Vicki Colvin (Brown U.), and Prof. Thomas Webster (Northeastern U.).

Abstract submission is now open, and due by March 12th; note that while poster submissions are open to all, the oral presentations are by invitation only.  Registration will open in mid-February 2018.

Also, on Saturday, March 3rd we will hold our 9th Annual Undergraduate and Graduate Chemistry and Biology Research Symposium.  It will be held in Knowles Hall on the SUNY Potsdam campus.  Abstracts are due by Friday, February 23rd, 2018 (NOTE NEW DATE!).
