The Midwest Astrochemistry Consortium is a new organization designed to bring together chemists, physicists, and astronomers in the midwestern region of the U.S. who are working in the interdisciplinary area of astrochemistry. The motivation is that at any given university or institute there are relatively few people working in this field, so uniting on a regional level can provide us with more opportunities for discussion and cross-fertilization of research ideas.

Our first event was a meeting that is co-sponsored by the Enrico Fermi Institute at the University of Chicago, on April 20, 2007. More information about this meeting can be found here.

Subsequent meetings have been held annually in Urbana on the University of Illinois campus.
