To quote from the meeting's website -
" The 44th Ontario-Quebec Physical Organic Mini-Symposium (POMs) will be held on November 4th-6th, 2016 at Brock University. POMs is one of the premier North American physical organic chemistry symposiums held annually to showcase recent research in all fields of science pertaining to physical organic chemistry such as bio-organic chemistry, theoretical organic chemistry, organic photochemistry, and mechanistic studies. This conference strongly encourages the active participation of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Participants are able to present either a short talk or poster presentations on recent work in the friendly, but rigorous atmosphere of a POMs meeting. "
