Annual Poster Session

ACS cookies!

The annual poster session is held annually typically in March or April at one of the local five four-year colleges that offer degree programs in chemistry. At this event, chemists at all levels - whether they are practicing professional chemists, graduate students or undergraduate students - are invited to present their latest research to the wider community of chemists in Dayton.

A number of cash awards are also offered to the best posters presented by graduate and undergraduate student researchers and is often a well-attended event. The Patterson College Chemistry Award is often also presented at this event.
