CINF Social Networking Events

ImageThe ACS Division of Chemical Information is very fortunate to receive generous financial support from our sponsors to maintain the high quality of the Division’s technical programs and to promote communication between members at social functions.  This year we had a large number of sponsors for the Fall 2014 ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, California, and CINF members and friends got to enjoy networking occasions at four splendid gatherings.

On Sunday the CINF Welcoming Reception was sponsored by Bio-Rad Laboratories, InfoChem, Kilmorie Clarke, PerkinElmerSpringer, Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, and AAAS/Science.

On Monday the Harry’s Party (recognized for its 50th anniversary noble tradition) was sponsored exclusively by ACS Publications

On Tuesday the CINF Luncheon was sponsored exclusively by RSC Publishing, and the 2014 Herman Skolnik Award Reception honoring Dr. Engelbert Zass was funded by Elsevier/Reaxys, Thieme Chemistry, ACS Publications and Chemical Abstracts Service.

Our sponsors also help to support other divisional activities at the meetings including Scholarships for Scientific Excellence for graduate students and postdocs in chemical information. At the 2014 Fall Meeting the four scholarships were sponsored exclusively by Royal Society of Chemistry.

The Division gratefully acknowledges contribution from all our sponsors! 

Looking forward to spring 2015, several opportunities are available to support the Division’s social events, speakers, and other conference-related material. Our sponsors are acknowledged on the CINF web site, in the Chemical Information Bulletin, on printed meeting materials, and at all events for which we use their contributions. Additional venues and benefits are reviewed in our Sponsorship Opportunities brochure at:
