The Crystal Engineering and Emerging Materials
Workshop of Ontario and Quebec (CEMWOQ) is an event that brings
together academic, and industrial researchers (students, faculty,
and staff) working on the design, synthesis, characterization, and
application of materials, with a focus on solid state chemistry and
crystal engineering. The workshop enables the exchange of ideas,
serving as an educational and networking event for students, as well
as academic and industrial professionals. The workshop consists of
oral presentations and an online poster session with time for
discussion within the program. Undergraduate and graduate students
are highly encouraged to give oral and poster presentations. To
facilitate the interaction and discussions between participants, the
number of attendees is limited. In keeping with CEMWOQ tradition,
registration is free!
