Suggest a Conference
Initially we will need a brief outline of the possible subject scope and any additional ideas you have regarding the number of speakers and delegates, length of conference, etc. Please contact us by email, or if your ideas are quite advanced it would be helpful if you could download, complete and return the conference proposal form.
A member of RSC staff will then contact you in due course.
We'd also be interested in your ideas for potential hot topics for conferences; please contact us.
Types of conference
We can organise conferences with many different structures, from one day meetings in niche areas, to established multi-day conferences, to international peripatetic congresses.
A very specific type of meeting that we organise is the Faraday Discussions. These unique international scientific conferences have a special format in which papers are distributed to all participants in advance of the conference and almost all the meeting is devoted to discussion of the papers. In this way, any participant at the conference has the opportunity to make a major contribution, and the papers and discussion are subsequently published.
