Canada in 2067 Symposium

This is a special symposium to highlight the work of selected Undergraduate students (http://ccce2019.ca/Canada2067). Eligible undergraduate students for this symposium are selected from those who applied and are giving poster presentations at the conference. The symposium will be comprised of 3-minute flash talks by selected students (ca. 20 total) who will present on the topic of their poster presentation. Their poster will also include a tag to identify them as a Canada in 2067 Presenter.

Students selected for the Canada in 2067 Symposium are also be eligible for a poster presentation award.

Student Oral Competitions

The following divisions will offer prizes for students delivering oral presentations.

Deadline: February 21, 2019.

Divisions and Prizes:

  • Biological and Medicinal Chemistry: up to three awards ($100* each) to a graduate student.
  • Chemistry Education:
    • two awards ($350* and $150*) to the best undergraduate or graduate student. Papers should be of general interest concerning the critical evaluation of their educational experiences, such as innovative learning/teaching strategies and materials or other topics that address chemical education.
    • One $500 travel award will be granted to an undergraduate or graduate student who is making an oral presentation in a Chemistry Education Division symposium. Students are encouraged to present papers pertaining to their experiences as an undergraduate student as it relates to an educational aspect of their chemistry studies. The application deadline was February 21, 2019.
  • Environment: one award ($250*) to the best undergraduate or graduate student.
  • Materials Chemistry: a number of awards will be given for the best graduate student presentations sponsored by Xerox Research Centre of Canada.
  • Organic Chemistry: a number of awards for the best undergraduate or graduate students. The number and amount of awards is dependant on the Subject Division’s financial situation and are at the discretion of the executive.
  • Physical, Theoretical and Computational Chemistry: one award for the best undergraduate or graduate student oral presentation.

Please note that depending on demand for various symposia, some oral presentations may be changed to poster presentations. In that case, the student would then be considered for the Poster Competition.
