Materials Symposium at Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY, Oct. 1-2, 2022

In collaboration with the Northern New York ACS Local Section, the Center for Materials Processing is hosting a symposium on Advanced Functional Materials for Emerging Science and Technology. Please spread the word about this symposium to attract a comprehensive body of attendees!

Please feel free to reach out if you are faculty or a student from a local or regional Primary Undergraduate Institution (e.g., SUNY Plattsburgh, Canton, Potsdam). There may be funds available to co-sponsor transportation to Clarkson and/or registration.

The full long version of the symposium announcement is below and the highlights of the meeting details are as follows:

  • 1.5-day materials symposium at Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY, October 1-2, 2022
  • The motto of the symposium is “Advanced Functional Materials for Emerging Science and Technology” which centers around functional (i) nanoporous materials (e.g., MOFs/COFs) and (ii) polymer materials (e.g., novel syntheses, upcycling, smart polymers) as the primary focus.
  • The symposium kicks off with welcome remarks at 8:20 am on Saturday (Oct 1) and concludes with the last session ending at 12:20 pm, followed by lunch, on Sunday (Oct 2). You would have ample of time to travel to Rochester, NY, (~3.5 h by car) if you intend to attend the ACS Northeast Regional Meeting (NERM) afterwards with their technical sessions starting on Oct 3.
  • 18 invited talks, 3 keynotes and 1 plenary lecture; student and postdoc posters including two talks selected from submitted abstracts.
  • No parallel sessions – one room, one session, one great networking experience.
  • Among others, Omar Farha (Northwestern University) is confirmed as our plenary speaker, along with Tomislav Friščić (McGill University), Silvana Andreescu (Clarkson University), and Christopher Ober (Cornell University) as keynote speakers.
  • The cost of registration is $100 for faculty and $50 for students/postdocs (dinner and lunches included).
  • Link with further information and to register:
  • The registration deadline is September 10, 2022. No on-site registration possible. Please reach out to us if you consider registering but cannot meet this deadline in the event of unusual circumstances. We might be able to accommodate you.
