254th American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition

Aug 20 - 24, 2017
Washington, DC

The Stone-Intrinsik Team will be attending the ACS Fall National Meeting in Washington, DC August 20-24, 2017. We look forward to participating in sessions to stay current on emerging topics, as well as sharing our knowledge and experience with industry, government, and academic colleagues. 

At this year’s ACS Meeting, the AGRO Division is hosting its largest program to date with over 420 papers and posters that cover a wide-variety of agrochemical topics. Many notable symposia are scheduled, including the following: “Environmental Fate, Transport & Modeling of Agriculturally-Related Chemicals,” “Application of Spatial Technologies to Advance Exposure Modeling & Risk Assessments, "and “Pesticides, Pollinator Health & Agricultural Sustainability.”

Our team is excited to contribute to scientific advancement by sponsoring symposia, helping organize and preside over a number of sessions, as well as lead the nine platform presentations detailed below. We hope to see you there!
