ACS on Campus is bringing it’s best speakers and programming to Nanyang Technological University for a day of publishing talks and science communication sessions. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from ACS Editors and the professionals on how to advance your research and communicate your science. Network with your peers and make lasting connections over free coffee breaks
You’ll hear from Prof. Paul Weiss the Editor-in-Chief of ACS Nano and Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at UCLA, Associate Professor Nam-Joon Cho of Nanyang Technological University, Prof. Mary Chan an Associate Editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces and more!
The event is free and open to all students studying the sciences – not just chemistry! You do not have to be a student of Nanyang Technological University to attend. Registration is highly recommended.
Don’t miss the chance to present your own science during the student poster presentations! Space is limited – registration is required for all poster presenters.
Instructions for Poster Presenters:
There is no required poster size. We recommend your poster does not exceed A0 (841×1189 mm). All posters should include a title, name, and affiliation of the presenters. Text should be concise enough to be read in under 10 minutes and from a distance of 4 feet (about 120 cm). Posters from previous conferences are accepted.
POSTER PRIZE EVALUATION
The poster session and evaluation will be held ofrom 14:00-15:15. All poster presenters must be at their posters during the evaluation to communicate with the judges and delegates.
Gift cards will be awarded to the best posters during the “Poster Prize Presentation.”
To be eligible for the “Best Poster” prizes, the applicant must:
• Be a Ph.D. Student or postdoc
• Have registered for ACS on Campus
• Be present during the Poster Evaluation Session

Paul Weiss, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, ACS Nano
Distinguished Professor, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, UCLA
Paul S. Weiss was born in Ithaca, N.Y., and received his S.B. and S.M. degrees in chemistry from MIT in 1980 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley in 1986. He was a post-doctoral member of technical staff at Bell Laboratories from 1986–1988 and a Visiting Scientist at IBM Almaden Research Center from 1988–1989. In 1989, he joined the faculty of The Pennsylvania State University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry. Professor Weiss was named Distinguished Professor in Chemistry and Physics in 2005. In 2009, Professor Weiss moved to University of California, Los Angeles, where he is currently the Fred Kavli Chair in NanoSystems Sciences and Director of the California NanoSystems Institute. He is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at UCLA.
Mary Chan, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces
Professor, School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, Nanyang Technological University Singapore
Dr Mary Chan is presently a professor at the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU Singapore). She is presently the Director of the Centre for Antimicrobial Bioengineering. Her expertise is in polymers for biotechnology and nanotechnology. She has been elected to being a Fellow of the America Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. She is also an associate editor of the ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.
