BNASS 2018: The 19th Biennial National Atomic Spectroscopy Symposium

2 - 4 July 2018, London, United Kingdom

BNASS (Biennial National Atomic Spectroscopy Symposium) is the biennial meeting of the RSC Atomic Spectroscopy Group and provides an ideal forum to encourage the exchange of ideas and knowledge in analytical atomic spectroscopy. BNASS is over 30 years old and during that time, there have been some tremendous changes in atomic spectroscopy. These advances have been showcased at BNASS, which has built an international reputation for both the quality of the science presented and the unique style of the symposium, enabling delegates to meet and discuss issues in a social setting. The meeting includes a mix of established and younger speakers, and the organisers would especially like to encourage young researchers to present their results in short oral presentations within each of the topic sessions. Abstract submission is now open and we welcome the following topics which are encouraged for oral and poster presentations:
  • Recent atomic spectroscopy advances
  • Fundamentals of collision cells including triple quadrupole MS
  • Measurement of nanoparticles (single particle analysis and field-flow fractionation)
  • Bio-imaging and laser ablation applications
  • Speciation and metallomics
  • Biological and clinical applications of trace element analysis
  • Environmental analysis
  • Food analysis
Abstracts submission is now open! Further details can be found in the "Abstract Submission Information" file in the document download area. You can also click on "Further Event Details" under Useful Links to submit your abstract. Maximum word limit 250.
