This section provides information relating to planning and organising scientific meetings.
The RSC Conferences team does not normally provide administrative support for Group meetings, but it is happy to provide advice on conference related matters.
The publication of proceedings is covered by RSC Publication Board Guidelines. Any group planning to publish the proceedings of any meeting organised by or sponsored by the RSC centrally or by any RSC Interest Group, then RSC Publishing must be offered first refusal. This includes publications based on only part of a meeting, as well as a book which included full proceedings.
A number of forms and templates referred to in the Handbook for RSC Groups can be downloaded here and adapted for your use.
Submit your events to the conference and events database for maximum publicity
A risk assessment form must be filled out for every event organised by the RSC. All forms are available for download along with examples of Red Risk Assessment Forms .
Funds are available to assist RSC Interest Groups organising a scientific meeting. Submissions should normally be made by the Group Secretary.
