2020 ACS Fall National Meeting and Exposition

Concerns regarding COVID-19 have led many to question the status of the ACS Fall National Meeting scheduled for August 16-20, 2020 in San Francisco, California. ACS has made the decision that the Fall Meeting WILL take place in one form or another. They are exploring a number of options and scenarios to allow for a safe and meaningful exchange of scientific research and information. These scenarios range from an in-person events to a mix of in-person and virtual activities to an all virtual event.  The latest updates are available at the ACS Website. Thank you to all who have submitted your abstracts and for those of you organizing symposia! We will have an excellent scientific program despite the challenges. We have made the difficult decision to postpone the AGRO50 celebration until 2021 so that we can all safely be together. See the 50th Anniversary webpage for more information. For specific questions, please contact AGRO 2020 Program Chair: Leah Riter, Bayer.
