The Analytical Research Forum (ARF) provides the opportunity for early career researchers from analytical communities to present their work, alongside high profile analytical scientists. This flagship event of the Analytical Division will showcase cutting-edge analytical chemistry and applications to stimulate new research, collaboration and engagement between researchers based in academia and industry. Our one day format includes keynotes and invited talks, panel discussions about careers in analytical chemistry plus additional oral contributions selected by the Scientific Committee from the submitted abstracts. The poster session enables yet more participants to share their work in this exciting interdisciplinary meeting for the analytical science community. In addition to opportunities during lunch and refreshment breaks to view the posters, further networking will be possible during an early evening wine reception. The Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund will sponsor bursaries up to £250 for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and employees of SMEs to attend the meeting.
