The American Chemical Society’s Green Chemistry Institute® (ACS GCI) is pleased to announce the call for symposia for the 25th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference. The Conference will be held June 14-16, 2021, in Reston, Virginia.
Sustainable Production to Advance the Circular Economy is the 2021 conference theme. This theme directly links to U.N. Sustainable Development Goal 12, Responsible Consumption and Production, and reflects the role of chemistry and engineering in creating a closed-loop economy for a sustainable future. Similar to previous conferences, the Committee is interested in proposals spanning the breadth and depth of green and sustainable chemistry and engineering.
The Conference Organizing Committee seeks proposals that:
Topics Include, But Are Not Limited To, The Following:

Green Chemistry & Engineering Diversity, Inclusion & Respect Statement
Diversity, Inclusion & Respect are core values of the American Chemical Society and the ACS Green Chemistry Institute. We are committed to promoting an inclusive, diverse, and respectful conference for participants, organizers, and attendees. We recognize the shared responsibility needed for a safe and productive meeting environment regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, religion, race, or nationality. All GC&E participants are expected to treat others with respect to facilitate open dialogue and effective discussions.
We ask that symposia coordinators be mindful of the following guidelines as they are finalizing their speaker lists for GC&E.
– Include a minimum of 30% of under-represented groups (including women and People of Color)
– Incorporate expertise from a range of geographic locations
– Include speakers from all stages of career
– Include diverse stakeholder perspectives from across the chemistry enterprise, where appropriate
Please submit your symposia proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “2021 GC&E Symposia Proposal” by October 9, 2020. All symposia submissions will be reviewed by the Conference Organizing Committee and applicants will be notified of decisions by November 20, 2020. If you have questions, please contact us at the email address above.
We’re looking forward to creating an exciting event as we convene a diverse scientific community to advance green chemistry and engineering research, education and sustainable technologies.
Stay safe and healthy!
