Attendees whose abstracts were accepted for the now-cancelled spring ACS national meeting in Philadelphia will be able to share their posters and presentations through SciMeetings, a virtual science-sharing platform developed by ACS Publications in collaboration with other ACS divisions. The platform will be fully open access and available at scimeetings.acs.org/ACSSpring2020.
Presenters will receive an email containing an individualised link, which they will use to upload materials related to their accepted posters and presentations, including data and any audio, video, and animation files. They can even upload a video of them giving their oral presentations. Presenters will have until April 30 to upload their content, which they can make either private or visible to the public.
Presenters will also receive a DOI and Creative Commons license for each of their uploaded posters and presentations, which has not been previously available for presentations given at a national meeting. The public started viewing posters and presentations from March 22, which was the planned start of the ACS national meeting in Philadelphia. Posters and presentations will be indexed by SciFinder and searchable by keyword on SciMeetings, as well as on the ACS Publications website, pubs.acs.org. Presenters can also link to their posters and presentations from social media platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, and they can track content views, downloads, and other analytics.
Some ACS divisions, such as the Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry, are also working on virtual ways to share science from the Philadelphia national meeting. The fall 2020 ACS National Meeting & Expo in San Francisco in August is being planned. The abstract deadline has been extended to April 20.
