ECMSS is organized by The Student Association of Environmental Science and Engineering (SAESE). For more information regarding SAESE and other sponsored events, visit our website here.
The Environmental Chemistry and Microbiology Student Symposium (ECMSS, formerly ECSS) has been a long standing tradition at Penn State that brings together graduates, undergraduates, and faculty members engaged in environmentally-relevant research.
The 17th annual ECMSS is scheduled for March 28-29, 2014 in the Forest Resources Building at Penn State University's Main Campus in University Park, PA.
The ECMSS Organizing Committee is pleased to announce three Keynote Speakers, including Dr. David Sedlak (University of California, Berkeley), Dr. Markus Buehler (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and Penn State's own Dr. Richard Alley. Speaker biographies are provided under the Keynote Speakers tab.
The final 2014 ECMSS Abstract Book is now available.
The final Student Presentation Schedule is also available.
Graduate and undergraduate students are eligible to participate, and students from outside institutions are invited to join us for the event. Submissions for the photo and t-shirt contests will also be accepted through the ECMSS website during the registration period.
