Analytical Research Forum 2012, 2-4 July 2012, Durham, UK


The annual Analytical Research Forum (ARF) is the premier Analytical Science meeting of the RSC. The meeting is primarily for early-stage analytical science researchers (industrial scientists, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows) to present their latest results in the context of the wider analytical science community. 

The programme will feature both poster sessions and lectures, including oral presentations from students, medal winners and international leaders in the field. 


One of the valuable benefits of attending ARF is the opportunity to network with contemporary researchers who cover a wide range of analytical techniques and experience. Networking takes place through interactive poster sessions and a lively social programme. 


Generously supported by the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF) of the Analytical Division, the forum is traditionally able to offer a number of discretionary travel bursaries to students.

We would like to extend our thanks to the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF) for their continued support of young analytical scientists in granting travel bursaries to attend ARF12.

We are most grateful to the Electroanalytical Sensing Systems Group (EASSG), an interest group of the Analytical Division of the RSC, for their support of ARF12.

We would also like to thank Analytical Methods for their donation of a poster presentation prize at ARF12.


We are grateful to Future Science Group for their support of the Analytical Research Forum 2012.
