There is a Central Parking Garage at the intersection of Loop Rd. and Alumni Rd., only a few blocks away.
This annual, regional meeting provides a forum where catalysis in its various forms — heterogeneous to homogeneous, computational to experimental, surface science to materials synthesis, applied to fundamental, academic to industrial — can be discussed. Please make plans to attend. We have an exciting lineup of invited speakers as well as many poster presentations.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Carl Mesters, Shell Oil
- C. Buddie Mullins, UT, Austin
- David Artrip, Catalytic Consultants — A Conversation about Entrepreneuring in Catalysis
- Raghu Menon, Albemarle
- Mahdi Abu-Omar, Purdue
- Max Tirtowidjojo, Dow- Efficient Production of High Purity Phenolic Glycol Ethers
Additionally, sponsorship opportunities as well as exhibition tables are also available. If you or your company would like to sponsor a portion of the SWCS 2012 Annual Symposium or have catalysis-related exhibits to display that would be of interest to the membership, please contact John Novak at email@example.com for more information.
