May 10, 2019 to May 12, 2019

Building on the success of previous events, the EAP weekend provides networking and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for early career analytical scientists across all disciplines, open to both industry and academia.  Each year we include general interest talks as well as specialist lectures, CPD and back to basics sessions.  

Our 2019 theme, Elementary: Exploring the Analytical Sciences’ investigates how analytical science underpins the sciences. This  includes topics such as electrochemistry, environmental, forensics, safety and security, pharmaceuticals, spectrometry and much more.  This conference aims to facilitate sharing of knowledge and experience between a diverse group of analytical scientists.  Please see the flyer attached and more information at

Our keynote speakers for EAP 2019 are:

  • Prof Karen Faulds, University of Strathclyde - "Multiplexed and quantitative bioanalysis using Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS)"
  • Dr David Peggie , City & Guilds of London art school- "The elements of art: Analytical Chemistry at the National Gallery, London"

Early Career Speakers - Deadline 31st January 2019

We are looking for ‘Bright Sparks’ to present a 20 minute talk (including questions); the subject may be related to their current research or job role. The ‘Bright Spark’ category is for early career industry professionals or researchers (including PhD students) who might not have presented to a large audience before. Outstanding presentations are awarded prizes of £150 donated by EAP sponsors.  

Early Career Poster Presenters - Deadline 31st march 2019

We also encourage delegates to present posters detailing their work or research. Poster presenters give a 1 minute pitch during the conference, summarising their work. We strictly adhere to the pitch time limit as the ability to talk clearly and concisely under pressure is a useful skill to master. Prizes of £50 are awarded to authors of exceptional posters and good summarisers; the prize money is donated by EAP sponsors.
