The deadline for abstracts for the AIChE Annual Conference has been
extended until next Monday, May 19.

That means there's still an opportunity to submit an abstract for our
Division 10(e) session on "Chemical Engineering Applications of Web 2.0"

Abstracts may be submitted for consideration via the AIChE Conference
Management system:

Session Description
Chemical Engineering Applications of Web 2.0

Technology pundit and publisher Tim O'Reilly first coined the term "Web
2.0" in 2004, to describe   a convergence of technologies and business
models that have had a significant impact on the way we view the World
Wide Web. Social Networking sites such as FaceBook and LinkedIn, social
bookmarking sites such as, and collaborative content tools
such as Wikis and blogs, are all part of this transformation of the web
from "top down" information models to "bottom-up" models, where
information is built collaboratively by communities of interest. This
session will focus on applications of these technologies to problems in
chemical engineering and chemical engineering education.  Papers and/or
posters are invited which address: chemical engineering blogs and wikis;
use of social networking applications within the chemical engineering
community; use of collaborative bookmarking sites and other Web 2.0
tools within the chemical engineering profession; other applications of
Web 2.0 technology to chemical engineering
