Young Scientists Mixer


July 25, 2010

The Young Scientist Mixer is one of the meeting's most popular events. The mixer provides a great opportunity for young scientists (students, postdocs, and early career scientists/teachers) to network and socialize. The mixer is enthusiastically supported largely by ACA corporate members. There will be no charge for registered students or postdocs but you must indicate on your registration form if you wish to attend. Tickets will be available for $20 for all other registered participants and registered guests.
Mentoring Dinner


July 26, 2010

Since 1995 the ACA has sponsored a Mentoring Dinner to provide a relaxed atmosphere for young scientists to network and seek mentors within the crystallographic community.  Young scientists will have the opportunity to discuss their science and career aspirations with seasoned scientists within their field. While there is no obligation to maintain contacts made during this event, we hope that both Mentors and Mentees will find it a rewarding experience. Mentees are usually considered students, post-docs, and early career teachers/scientists (i.e. non-tenured assistant professors) while Mentors are typically more experienced researchers, although assistant professors wishing to mentor are more than welcome to do so.  Tickets are $25 for Mentees and $35 for Mentors.
