The 22nd Annual RISE Conference brought together this year's RISE Scholars from across Canada to share their summer research results on the campus of St. Francis Xavier University in beautiful Antigonish, NS. The one-day conference featured research talks spanning a range of areas, including polymer, molecular, and materials photophysics, photoredox catalysis, fluorescence microscopy, and main group bonding and reactivity. The day ended with a talk by new RISE participant Prof. Eva Hemmer, followed by a banquet on the campus of StFX. .

We thank Profs. Geniece Hallett-Tapley and Brian Wagner, RISE Scholar Melissa Chassé, and St. Francis Xavier University for hosting this year's conference. We also thank this year's conference sponsors - the Vice-President Research and Dean of Science at the University of Prince Edward Island, the Research Grant Office and Dean of Science at StFX, the Inorganic and Physical, Theoretical and Computational Divisions of the Canadian Society for Chemistry, and the Maritime Division of the CIC for their generous financial support.
