The 2020 Stille Science Symposium
The 9th Stille Symposium will be held at Colorado State University. Four world-renowned scientists, Jeanne E. Pemberton (Univ of Arizona); Luis M. Campos (Columbia University); Nathan S. Lewis (Caltech) and Thomas F. Jaramillo (Stanford) will give lectures on the frontiers in energy science. The symposium will also feature a poster session and reception.
The lectures and poster session are free and open to the public. If you are planning to attend, please fill out the brief registration information below so we can get an accurate head count.

ABOUT THE STILLES
Professor John K. Stille was an internationally recognized scientist who pioneered research in synthetic, polymer, and organometallic chemistry and held the title of University Distinguished Professor at Colorado State University. His research contributions and discoveries in these fields formed the basis of many important developments and technologies in use today. Professor Stille’s untimely death was the result of a commercial airline crash in July 1989.
His wife, Dolores, was a strong supporter of her husband’s career and of the Department of Chemistry at Colorado State University until her death in February 1995.
Professor Stille’s former students and postdoctoral fellows continue to carry on his legacy, holding important positions in the academic, government, and industrial research communities.
In order to preserve the memory of this gifted scientist and his devoted wife, the Department of Chemistry, with the aid of numerous personal contributions from former students, faculty, colleagues, and industrial firms, has established the Stille Science Symposium. Since Professor Stille’s research interests and contributions ranged over diverse disciplines, each symposium has a different theme.
