256th ACS National Meeting & Exposition – Theater Presentations
ACS on Campus is attending the 256th ACS National Meeting & Exposition in Boston, Massachusetts! Join us in the ACS booth theater on Monday, August 20 and Tuesday, August 21 for special presentations on how to get published with the ACS editors, exploring careers outside the lab, and the debut of how to create the best graphical abstracts. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn from ACS Editors and professionals in the chemical sciences.
Prof. Prashant Kamat the Editor-in-Chief of ACS Energy Letters will be presenting, “The Art of Graphical Abstracts and Why They Matter.” Be sure to catch the debut of this highly anticipated presentation!
You’ll also get top scholarly publishing tips from Prof. Teri Odom, Executive Editor of ACS Photonics, Prof. Yan Li, Associate Editor of ACS Nano, and Prof. Elsa Reichmanis, Executive Editor of Chemistry of Materials on August 21!
First 20 participants will receive an ACS on Campus swag bag! No registration is required. Take a break at ACS National Meeting and join us for a professional development session in the ACS booth!

10 Tips for Scholarly Publishing with the ACS Editors
Prashant V. Kamat, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, ACS Energy Letters
Zahm Professor of Science, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Radiation Laboratory, University of Notre Dame
Professor Kamat earned his doctoral degree in Physical Chemistry from the Bombay University (1979), and carried out postdoctoral research at Boston University (1979-1981) and the University of Texas at Austin (1981-1983). He joined the Radiation Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame in 1983 and initiated a project on utilizing semiconductor nanostructures for light energy conversion. He is currently a Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Notre Dame. He has published more than 350 papers in peer reviewed journals. He has edited two books on nanostructured materials. He served as the Deputy Editor of The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters from 2010 to 2016. For the past 25 years Prof. Kamat has been conducting DOE-BES supported research in the areas of photochemistry and photoelectrochemistry of semiconductor nanostructures and sensitizing dyes at Notre Dame. During the early years, his research was focused on understanding interfacial charge transfer processes in semiconductor and metal colloids and nanostructures.
Teri W. Odom, Ph.D.
Executive Editor, ACS Photonics
Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and Associate Director of the International Institute of Nanotechnology (IIN), Northwestern University
Teri W. Odom is Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and Associate Director of the International Institute of Nanotechnology (IIN) at Northwestern University. She is an expert in designing structured nanoscale materials that exhibit extraordinary size and shape-dependent optical properties. Odom has pioneered a suite of multi-scale nanofabrication tools that has resulted in flat optics that can manipulate light at the nanoscale and beat the diffraction limit, plasmon-based nanoscale lasers that exhibit tunable color, and hierarchical substrates that show controlled wetting and super-hydrophobicity. Odom was the founding Chair of the Noble Metal Nanoparticles Gordon Research Conference, whose inaugural meeting was in 2010. In addition, Odom was an inaugural Associate Editor for RSC’s flagship journal Chemical Science (2009-2013) and is on the Editorial Advisory Boards of ACS Nano, Chemical Physics Letters, Materials Horizons, Annual Reviews of Physical Chemistry, Chemical Society Reviews, and Nano Letters. She serves as founding Executive Editor of the journal ACS Photonics (2013 – ).
Yan Li, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Nano
Chang Jiang Professor, College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, Peking University
Yan Li received her Ph.D in inorganic chemistry from Peking University in 1993. After two years’ postdoctoral research, she joined the faculty of Chemistry, Peking University in 1995. From 1999 to 2001, she was a visiting Associate Professor at Duke University. She has been the full professor of chemistry at Peking University since 2002. She is also appointed as a distingguished visiting professor in The University of Tokyo since 2016. She has received many awards and honors, such as Chang Jiang Scholar by Chinese Ministry of Education, Chemical Innovation Award Distinguished Scientist by Chinese Chemical Society, Outstanding Researcher by China Association for Science and Technology, fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry etc.
