SCIP Symposium 2015!
This symposium has been running since the
1970s, involving research focused on Inorganic Photochemistry from USC,
Caltech, UCLA, UCSB, UCSD and UCI. The format this year will follow
that used at previous SCIPs. The shift to a
Wed-Fri mode is to accommodate the Indianapolis ACS meeting that is
in September, rather than the normal time frame in August.
parameters for 2015:
- Location: Wrigley
Marine Institute, USC, Catalina Island (as it has been for years)
- Date: September
if paid by August 31: $220 (check for $200 and $20 cash at
Cost if paid after August 31: $250
(Includes room, board and evening refreshments, does not include
transportation to and from the site)
Different universities handle the expenses differently, but USC needs
a single check from each research group or university (I will not
accept individual checks). The
check should be made out to “The University of Southern California”. We can provide individual receipts
if needed. Talk to your site coordinator to see how it is to be
handled at your institution.
We must have a
final headcount by the 24th of August. On the 24th I will get a
headcount from each group. Refunds after the 24th of August are
only possible if Wrigley gives me the money back, which they are not
obligated to do.
- EVERY student or
postdoc gives a 10 minute talk, but the length varies year to year, NO
faculty give talks.
space is available we are happy to accommodate spouses, partners,
boyfriends, girlfriends, friends or
whatever. The rate for them is the same as for the other
are before lunch and after dinner, afternoons are open to talk,
snorkel, hike, sleep or whatever. Kayaks and snorkeling gear
will be available for you to use.
speaker this year: Christian Reber
from the University of Montreal will be the outside speaker (http://www.mapageweb.umontreal.ca/reber/). In addition to being a brilliant photochemist, he is alumnus of SCIP!
