Emerging Analytical Professionals Conference, 11-13 May 2018, Knutsford

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 2018 theme, ‘The Circle of Life – Analysing the World Around Us’ describes how analytical science allows us to observe the world and its attributes.  This may be natural or artificial properties, and thus includes topics such as Analytical Chemistry, Clinical Science, Environmental, Forensic, and several other topics.  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 www.analyticalsciencenetwork.co.uk

Speakers are currently sought: all analytical science presentations will be considered but we would particularly welcome presentations related to our theme ‘The Circle of Life’. 

Bright Spark presenters

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.

Standard registration fees apply but we do have several bursaries that can be applied for.

Deadline for an abstract for your presentation by 31st January 2018.

Poster presenters 

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.

Standard registration fees apply but we do have several bursaries that can be applied for.

Deadline for an abstract for your poster by 31st March 2018.
