It may seem hard to remember what the world was like at the beginning of 2020. And for those of us labouring in the digital trenches, it seems hard to recall the world before CIC ViRTUAL. Was there ever a time when our website was not packed with webinars addressing all facets of the chemical sciences? It seems almost impossible to imagine as we enter the autumn of this pandemic year with a well populated Seminar Series stream featuring four current offerings. One of them is the familiar Global Inorganic Discussion Weekdays, which has been a CIC ViRTUAL mainstay since spring. Now three CIC subject divisions have joined this platform to address their chosen fields of interest. Those include macromolecular science and engineering, environmental chemistry, and physical, theoretical, and computational chemistry. Check to see if one of your favourite topics is being explored in this convenient, interactive format. And remember: these new channels of communication and creativity are all thanks to a virus none of us ever wanted.

EN ViRTUAL Seminar
Environmental Division (EN)

EN-Virtual Seminar series will cover a wide range of topics in environmental chemistry, including in the atmospheric, terrestrial, freshwater, marine and Arctic environments.


Global Inorganic Discussion Weekdays (GIDW)

GIDW Virtual Symposium brings the inorganic community together online! The name GIDW is an homage to the popular regional conferences known as Inorganic Discussion Weekends that occur routinely in the US, Canada, and around the world.

Macromolecular Science and Engineering Division (MSED)

MSED-Virtual Seminar series will host talks in all areas of polymer science and engineering, ranging from polymer synthesis and characterization to their applications in various exciting areas of science and technology.

Physical, Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (PTC)

PC-Virtual Seminar biweekly series brings together physical, theoretical, and computations chemists from academia, industry, and government at all career stages.
