Conference Alert: 2 Oral Deadlines Approaching

The Royal Society of Chemistry have 2 deadlines for oral abstracts for two exciting conferences coming up in 2014:


25th November – Oral Abstract Deadline for Faraday Discussion

In September 2014, the University of Bristol will be hosting a Faraday Discussion entitled Physical Chemistry of Functionalised Biomedical Nanoparticles. There will be speakers from all around the world giving presentations on this cutting edge topic, with a strong aim of promoting deep discussion in the field.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology has found applications in many aspects of modern life, but this conference focuses primarily on the functionalisation of nanoparticles for their use in the medical industry. Nanosilver has already started to be used in this field, but there are still changes to be made for this nanoparticle to improve its properties and widen its applications, and more to be explored for other nanomaterials, including nanotubes and graphene.

If you’re interested in this area of chemistry – good news! The deadline for abstracts is tomorrow, so there is still time to get involved! The organisers ask that oral abstracts outline current work in progress, and selected authors will be asked to present their work as a full research paper. Furthermore, the deadline for poster abstracts is 30 June 2014, so early career researchers and students have the chance to present as well.

This is an excellent opportunity for researchers in a very exciting area of chemistry to get together, network and share ideas.

2nd December – Oral Abstract Deadline for Dalton Discussion

You may remember my post about the upcoming Dalton Discussion being held in July at the University of Edinburgh entitled Advancing the Chemistry of the f-elements, and now the deadline for oral abstracts is approaching!

The f-elements have the possibility to be involved in many interesting applications, with their chemistry being quite different from their transition metal neighbours, and there is much scope for their use in the nuclear power industry. There is still much to be learned about the f-elements, with their chemistry often being surprising and unexpected, and events such as these help to bring researchers with expertise in this area together to share ideas.

Abstracts must be no longer than one A4 page, and submitted by the 2nd December. The authors who are selected will also be asked to present their work as a research paper, will be put together in a special edition of Dalton Transactions. There is also a deadline for poster abstracts on 19th May 2014, giving younger researchers the chance to be involved in the conference as well.

If you want more information about getting involved in this event, their website can be found here.

So, there we have it! Two deadlines for two very different but equally interesting events happening next year. Why not get involved, and help develop your career?
