WIPOS Testimonial

As a WIPOS 2022 participant, I would like to share that I absolutely loved the experience! The overall conference atmosphere was very tight-knit and welcoming, thanks to the Rice University team that handled the organization very professionally.

The lectures delivered by the world’s top chemistry leaders were amazing, leaving me with a renewed sense of inspiration and drive for my own research. I had the pleasure of meeting and networking with esteemed professors and industrial leaders, who provided valuable insights and perspectives on my work, as well as brilliant chemistry students who made the experience a lot of fun and whom I am still in touch with. The food and drinks were delicious, high-quality, and very different from other conferences, with a wide variety of options to suit all tastes and dietary requirements.

As I left the conference, I felt more inspired and enthusiastic than ever about my future chemistry endeavors. I would highly recommend WIPOS to undergraduate/graduate students, and I look forward to attending again in the future! And of course, the weather, ocean, and vibrant Hawaiian vibes were really good too!
