The 28th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference will be held June 3-5, 2024 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Conference theme is AI-Enabled Green Chemistry. As in previous years, the Committee is looking for proposals across the breadth of green and sustainable chemistry and engineering topics, whether AI-related or not, with an emphasis on symposia that explore how AI can enable green chemistry and engineering innovations that underpin global sustainability challenges. This may address green and sustainable chemistry and engineering in product manufacturing processes, products in use by consumers, products under development, and by designing products for what happens to them after their useful life.
The call for Symposia deadline is October 14, 2023. More Information.DEIR Statement
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Respect are core values of the American Chemical Society and the ACS Green Chemistry Institute. We are committed to promoting an inclusive, diverse, and respectful conference for participants, organizers, and attendees. We recognize the shared responsibility needed for a safe and productive meeting environment regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, religion, race, or nationality. All GC&E participants are expected to treat others with respect to facilitate open dialogue and effective discussions.
We ask that symposia coordinators be mindful of the following guidelines as they are finalizing their speaker lists for GC&E.
