I got a conference invitation to present my work at the 3rd "world congress of Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis" in Beijing this spring. I was intrigued and excited to present, but I have to admit, even from the first email, red flags were going up.  The very first email I got from them said something like they hadn't heard from me after their initial email a few days ago. I put together an abstract and got on the program and was happily planning my trip to China.

Regional Conferences: Inorganic Discussion Weekends, annually in late October

Submitted by JR / Oberlin College on Sun, 07/18/2010 - 09:26

The Inorganic Discussion Weekend is a fantastic opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research in a colleagial environment. IDW is held every year at the end of October and rotates among universities in Ontario and Quebec. This year, the conference will be hosted by the University of Windsor, making it even more accessible to students and faculty in the Midwestern U.S.
