NOBCChE Conference

NOBCChE is Going Virtual!

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend this year's virtual conference, NOBCChE 2020, to be held September 24-25. Due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to change the format of our conference from live to virtual.  Our planning team has gone the extra mile to make sure that the online format will offer the same opportunities as our live event usually does.  While we have shortened the main portion of the conference to two days, we will be sharing pertinent content related to the conference in the following months as well (six months of content is included in your registration fee). This year's conference events include the Master Scientist Series, incorporating the Winifred Burks-Houck and Percy Julian Lectures, the Career and Academic Fair, the NOBCChE ConneXions Poster Competition, and several Professional and Student Development sessions!"

Quick Links and Resources


Highlights Will Include: 

  • Career Fair and Academic Expo: Our Career Fair is on Friday, September 25. Stop by our virtual hall to meet with our sponsors and exhibitors through live video chat, and learn about exciting job opportunities that they may have for you.
  • Workshops:
    • Imposter Syndrome & Wellness
    • AAAS Professional Development Opportunities
    • ACS Acing the Interview 
  • Technical Poster Sessions: We will again offer a variety of Technical Sessions in the form of posters with accompanying 3-5 minute summaries.
  • On Demand Webinars: Create your best resume, and hone your interviewing skills
  • DuPont Gold Seminar
  • Awards and Recognition
  • Two Pre-Conference Seminars (if registered by the appropriate deadline)

At our live conferences support is available for students and postdocs in the form of the Advancing Science Conference Grant (ASCG). Because the event is virtual this year with a largely reduced fee, the National Planning Committee has decided to use some of those funds to create other opportunities for our students.
