The Midwest Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (MWSCC) has announced its speaker lineup for the 2011 Technical Symposium. As this year’s theme is “The Many Faces of Cosmetic Science,” the event will feature speakers in spectroscopy, Internet research, skin care devices, choosing fragrance for personal care products, the US Food and Drug Administration’s Final Rule on sunscreen labeling and ethnic care formulating.
The event will take place on Oct. 13, 2011 at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, Ill., USA. For the first time ever, the symposium will also feature a student poster session, where students from cosmetic programs nationwide will present their scientific work. The posters will be judged and awards will be given. This is great opportunity for students to present their ideas and findings and meet members of the MWSCC.
Early bird registration before Sept. 30, 2011, will be $105 for SCC members, $120 for non-members and $50 for Emeritus members. After Sept. 30, 2011, registration will increase to $130 for members, $150 for non-members and $50 for Emeritus members.
The event will go from 9:30 am to 3:55 pm, with registration and breakfast from 8:30-9:30 am and the student poster session from 9:00 am-3:00 pm.
