MIM 2020 will be held on the afternoon and evening of Monday, March 9, at Cuyahoga Community College Western Campus in Parma, OH. Registration for the meeting is free. The half-day program will begin in the mid-afternoon with parallel sessions of 20-min talks (including 5 min of Q&A). A plenary lecture by David Schiraldi, Professor of Macromolecular Science & Engineering from Case Western Reserve University, and dinner will follow the presentations. There are cash awards for both undergraduate and graduate presenters.

The Meeting-in-Miniature (MIM) of the Cleveland Section of the ACS has become a much-anticipated event in the calendar of many local undergraduate and graduate researchers. MIM is a great way to showcase your work and is effective preparation for presenting at an ACS national meeting, regional meeting or job interview. It is also a great opportunity to meet chemistry, biochemistry and chemical engineering faculty and students from neighboring colleges and universities.
