About Ohio Inorganic Weekend

The Ohio Inorganic Weekend is a conference that is centered around the broad theme of “inorganic chemistry”. This conference brings together students, postdocs, and faculty from the general Midwest region (Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky), with the goal of stimulating discussion and potentially initiate collaborations. Moreover, the relaxed setting provides an ideal venue for undergraduate and graduate students to give what is often their first public presentation outside of their home institution. These aspects of the conference are unique and draw diverse groups of scientists in the region.
