The meeting will be held March 25-29, 2012, in San Diego, Calif., and will take place at the San Diego Convention Center and at area hotels.
With more than 11,700 presentations on new discoveries that span science's horizons from astronomy to zoology ― the meeting will offer print, broadcast and online journalists a rich assortment of spot news and feature possibilities. The topics include food and nutrition, medicine, health, energy, the environment and other fields where chemistry plays a central role.
