Cal ACS returns to the Bay Area Science Festival’s Discovery Day at Oracle Park with more fun, hands-on chemistry activities. You can recreate Alessandro Volta’s original electrical pile, and discovery more wonders of the Marvelous Metals as we celebrate this year’s National Chemistry Week theme. Help us share the excitement of science with the public as we recognize the 150th anniversary of the Mendeleyev’s Periodic Table.
We’ll be there with more than 200 community organizations and laboratories celebrating every facet of science and technology. This is your chance to roam the SF Giant’s home field for free!
If you’d like to help out, please contact Alex Madonik, National Chemistry Week Coordinator for the California Section: email@example.com or 510-872-0528
Introducing the Bay Area Chemistry Symposium, a Silicon Valley and California ACS-sponsored symposium on Synthesis and Design in Medicinal and Process Chemistry
Friday, November 8th, 2019
This symposium, unique in the Bay, will provide an ideal forum to meet and exchange ideas covering themes in chemical biology, synthesis, and computational chemistry among students, postdocs, and industrial chemists.
The symposium will feature:
- Keynote seminars from Stanford Professor Carolyn Bertozzi, UCSF Professor Bill DeGrado, and UC Berkeley Professor Richmond Sarpong
- Industrial chemistry seminars from AbbVie, Gilead, Merck, and Novartis
- Eight graduate student and postdoc short talks
- Poster presentations by graduate students, postdocs, and industrial chemists from renowned institutions and companies around the Bay Area
Please join us to network with local chemists and learn about cutting-edge chemistry happening across the Bay Area’s outstanding academic institutions and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.
The first Bay Area Chemistry Symposium is being hosted by the Merck Research Labs at 213 East Grand Avenue in South San Francisco.

will provide California, Oregon, and Washington with advanced warning of potentially
damaging shaking. The hopes for early warning systems are high, but the reality of what
can be expected from earthquake early warning is nuanced. Earthquakes don’t happen
in an instant and don’t tell us how big they will become. This means that any forecasts
that we make will be imperfect, and the amount of warning will be short: in many cases,
only a few seconds of warning will be possible. In spite of these limitations, there could
still be significant value to earthquake early warning, especially for people who are
willing to adopt a “better safe than sorry” strategy of taking protective action for
earthquakes that have only a small chance of causing damage. What kind of warning
system would you prefer? One that issues alerts for weak shaking, but also sends alerts
for many events that do not go on to produce strong shaking? Or an earthquake early
warning system that issues alerts only once ground shaking is expected to be
damaging, but there is an increased chance that the alerts could be issued too late?
During this talk, you will discover how an earthquake early warning system works, how
warnings are issued and how much warning is possible.
