It is a pleasure to inform you that the Division is now receiving nominations for the 10th annual I&EC Division Fellows Award.
The I&EC Division includes the Separation Science and Technology (SST), Novel Chemistry with Industrial Applications (NCIA), Green Chemistry and Engineering (GCE), and Applied Chemical Technology (ACT) subdivisions. The call is for three award nominations: a chemist, a chemical engineer, and an applied chemical technologist.
The award consists of a plaque naming each awardee a Fellow of the I&EC Division, registration to the Spring meeting at which the award will be presented, complimentary one-year membership in the Division, and a $750 travel award to be used by the awardee; if all of the funds are not expended by the nominee, he or she may use the remaining funds to help defray the cost of attendance of a colleague to the national meeting. The awardees will be announced on the Division’s website and the award presentation made at the Spring 2016 meeting.
The awardees are to be honored at the Spring 2016 ACS meeting as I&EC Division Fellows. A symposium is to be organized for each awardee by someone chosen by the awardee. A one-session symposium is planned but the Division is happy to consider a greater number of sessions at the request of the organizer.
Please send nominations to Spiro Alexandratos (email@example.com) who will forward them to the other members of the selection committee.
*The deadline is 31 March 2015.*
The nomination requirements for the chemist and chemical engineer:
(1) A chemist and an engineer are to be selected based on innovative contributions to the areas in which they have published.
The areas are ones to which both chemists and engineers contribute.
Chemists / engineers can be from academic, industrial, or government laboratories.
(2) Patents are given equal weight to papers in the open literature and nominations from industry are encouraged.
(3) The nominator is to submit a nominating letter detailing how the work of the nominee complements the work of chemists (if the nominee is an engineer) or complements the work of engineers (if the nominee is a chemist). If the work fits into one of the subdivisions of the Division, the nominator should illustrate this. Also to be submitted is a CV and up to five relevant publications/patents. A letter seconding the nomination is required. Only the nominator must be a member of the Division at the time of nomination.
The nomination requirements are as follows for the Applied Chemical Technology Fellow award:
An individual with an undergraduate degree as the terminal degree who is a chemist or engineer from an academic, industrial, or government laboratory will be honored at the Spring ACS meeting as an I&EC Applied Chemical Technology Fellow. The criteria are:
(1) Outstanding technical contributions in an area to which both chemists and engineers contribute.
(2) The nominator, who must be a member of the Division, is to submit a nominating letter detailing how the work of the nominee contributed to the technical field. The number of oral and written presentations as well as any outside articles or patents should be listed. If the work also fits into one of the other subdivisions of the Division, the nominator should illustrate this. Also to be submitted is a CV or resume and at least one seconding letter.

I&EC Division Graduate Student Symposium--CALL FOR PAPERS FOR 250th National Meeting, Boston MA, Aug. 16-20, 2015
The I&EC Division requests papers for its 5th Annual Graduate Student Award Symposium.
This symposium allows outstanding graduate students, currently enrolled in a program in
the chemical sciences, to disseminate their research to the global professional community.
The Division seeks papers that are relevant to industrial and engineering chemistry in
general, and/or to the subdivisions within I&EC. These subdivisions are: Applied Chemical
Technology (ACT); Green Chemistry and Engineering (GCE); Industrial Bio‐Based
Technology (IBT); Novel Chemistry for Industrial Application (NCIA); and Separation
Science and Technology (SST). The Division anticipates holding two or three half‐day
sessions with a maximum of seven papers accepted for presentation in each session.
Student participants will be expected to attend the symposium awards luncheon as well,
and their research advisors are also encouraged to attend.
Every graduate student lead author accepted for this Symposium will be awarded an ACS
members meeting registration fee. All submissions and presentations will be evaluated by
a panel selected by the Division. In addition, the first, second, and third place winners will
receive monetary awards. To be eligible for any award, the presenter must be a student
who is pursuing a graduate degree in the chemical sciences and engineering, at the time of
Graduate students must apply for the Student Award Symposium by submitting an entry
consisting of an 1800‐word research summary, along with a brief support letter. The
research summary is limited 5 total pages, including an abstract of less than 250 words.
The research summary will not be published. It will be used solely for selecting student
participants and judging the entries. The letter must come from the advisor, confirming
that the student is currently enrolled and is the lead author responsible for the work to be
presented. The research summary and support letter should be sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org by March 23, 2015. Students must also input their
abstracts in the ACS abstracts system by the ACS deadline, which is March 16, 2015.
Students will be notified of their acceptance by April 10, 2015.
Questions about this symposium can be directed to the organizers, again using the
symposium email email@example.com.
