ACS ProSpectives is a series of small conferences for senior-level industry scientists. Each conference examines a field's important topics through presentations by its foremost researchers. Attendance at the conferences is limited to 200 or fewer to facilitate easy interaction among the speakers and those attending. From 15-20 leading experts in each field participate in a given conference.
"ACS ProSpectives conferences are unique in that they are designed in format and content solely to meet the needs of scientists employed in industry," according to John Katz, ACS ProSpectives program director.
The conferences are in addition to the Society's two national meetings and its eight to ten regional meetings held every year. Following are the topics, conference chairs, dates and locations for the six confirmed 2003 ACS ProSpectives Conferences.
Process Chemistry in the Pharmaceutical Industry The program will focus on the art of building organic molecules while operating within regulatory constraints.
