The Next POMs

The 40th POMs, is scheduled for the fall of 2012, at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. 
The dates for it are Friday, Nov 2 – Sunday, Nov 4.  The website for the meeting is to be found here .  It is being organized by Jean-Michel Nunzi and his colleagues.
As most readers of this blog will already know, the 39th POMs was held in London, Ontario, on November 4-6, 2011.  The meeting was skillfully organized by J. Peter Guthrie, with the help of his wife Muriel, his colleague, Mark Workentin, and other coworkers.  It was supported by the Department of Chemistry, and the Faculty of Science of the University of Western Ontario, which is now to be known as Western University. 
Here is a link to the POMs 2011website. There were 66 registrants and the program featured 45 presentations (21 talks and 24 posters).  These numbers are somewhat lower than normal (for various reasons) but the quality of the student and post-doc presentations ranged from good to very good to excellent.  Well done, everybody!
