27th North American Catalysis Meeting — Abstracts submission deadline is November 9, 2020

Dear Catal­y­sis Com­mu­ni­ty,

It has been a chal­leng­ing time for all of us over the past six months as the glob­al com­mu­ni­ty has dealt with this health cri­sis and forced our com­mu­ni­ty to adapt to a new nor­mal. COVID-19 has cer­tain­ly cre­at­ed new chal­lenges for sci­en­tif­ic meet­ings and NAM27 will not be an excep­tion. We have spent the last sev­er­al months work­ing to plan NAM27 under these new cir­cum­stances and con­tin­ue to work very close­ly with the Mid­town Hilton to ensure anoth­er suc­cess­ful NAM con­fer­ence in 2021. Around our region, pos­i­tive signs of progress are now being seen as busi­ness­es con­tin­ue to reopen, includ­ing our venue the Mid­town Hilton, that has spent the past sev­er­al months imple­ment­ing an extreme­ly com­pre­hen­sive plan to ensure the safe­ty of all guests. Giv­en this pos­i­tive progress, we are con­tin­u­ing to plan for an in-per­son con­fer­ence. We have launched the tech­ni­cal pro­gram with the call for abstracts on Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 18th. We have been and will con­tin­ue to update the con­fer­ence web­site with per­ti­nent infor­ma­tion regard­ing the con­fer­ence. The call for abstracts sub­mis­sion dead­line is Novem­ber 9th, 2020. Please vis­it our web­site for the tech­ni­cal pro­gram and go to nam27.org/abstracts/ for abstract sub­mis­sion. While it will cer­tain­ly be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, we look for­ward to pro­vid­ing one of the first oppor­tu­ni­ties to bring our com­mu­ni­ty back togeth­er in per­son next May.
With regards,
Mar­co Castal­di, Israel Wachs, Lucas Dorazio
