Poster flash talk session

Accepted abstracts will be notified by November 23, 2020 to give virtual posters during the meeting. These will consist of 4-minute overviews of the following slides.

NECZA is very proud of this event and views it as one of the region’s premier opportunities for students and post-docs to showcase their work with local chemical industry professionals and academic colleagues. We look forward to adapting it to the virtual environment. Students and post-docs whose work is either directly or indirectly related to synthesis and characterization of zeolites and other porous materials as well as their application (e.g. catalysis, adsorption) are encouraged to submit entries. We would also like to use this virtual opportunity to share title/background slides on Twitter to our broader catalysis community. However, please notify us in the email if you do not wish any slides to be posted due to unpublished data/confidentiality, as we want to honor the tradition of discussing new data and cutting-edge research.
