Chemical Science Functional Organic Materials Symposium

24 September 2019 09:00 - 25 September 2019 17:00, London, United Kingdom


Phishing Warning
We are aware that some speakers and delegates have been approached by companies claiming to operate on behalf of the Royal Society of Chemistry to book their travel and accommodation for our conferences. Please note that whilst we do sometimes work with accommodation providers in order to facilitate hotel bookings, they would never approach you in the first instance. Details of accommodation providers that we are working with are in the ‘accommodation’ section of this webpage. If you are unsure about an e-mail / phone call you receive, please contact us and do not provide any credit card details or personal information.
Introduction
This meeting is the first in a new series of symposia at the home of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Under the banner of our flagship open access journal, Chemical Science, we’ll be shining a spotlight on cutting-edge chemistry research and giving it the sort of attention that drives scientific progress and makes a difference. 

We warmly invite you to join us for the first in this series of Chemical Science symposia, and look forward to welcoming you to the headquarters of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

About the symposium

Leading materials science researchers and emerging investigators from a broad range of backgrounds will come together to explore and celebrate the theme of the 2019 symposium: functional organic materials. The scientific programme of talks will also be complemented by flash talks and poster sessions to provide further networking opportunities and discussion for all attendees.

The topics covered during the symposium will include:
  • chiral materials
  • porous materials and covalent organic frameworks
  • nanomaterials
  • supramolecular and polymer chemistry
  • biomaterials and bioinspired materials
Applications include materials for (bio)sensing, electro- and photo-catalysis, electronic devices, energy conversion, harvesting and storage, optoelectronics, nanomedicine and biological applications.

Caring responsibilities

The Royal Society of Chemistry is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you have childcare, caring responsibilities or other care needs, and would like to attend this event, please do get in touch with us to see if there’s anything we can do to help enable you to attend.

Grants for carers

Grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities, for more information please refer to the ‘bursaries’ section on this page.

Grants for Carers 

You can apply for up to a maximum of £1000/year to assist with additional financial costs that you incur for care usually provided by you whilst you attend a chemistry related meeting, conference or workshop or a professional development event.
Caring responsibilities are wide and varied, and so each application will be individually assessed, examples of applications that we will consider include:
  • paying for extra home help or nursing care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • additional medical/respite care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • travel expenses for a relative to travel with you to care for dependents whilst you attend a meeting or event
  • paying for extended hours with a care worker/childminder/play scheme to cover time when you will arrive home later than normal.
You are eligible to apply if: 
  • you are a chemist
  • you will incur additional caring expenses whilst attending a chemistry-related meeting, conference, event or workshop or a professional development event
  • you will use these funds to cover the cost of care that you usually provide 
  • you are based in the UK or Ireland or if not, you will normally have held three years RSC membership (past or current).
These grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities.

These grants have been supported by The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Chemists’ Community Fund. 
Programme
All presentations will take place in the Library on the first floor of Burlington House.
The poster sessions will take place on 24 and 25 September in the Library Café, Council and Hinshelwood Rooms, which are located next to the Library on the first floor of Burlington House.
The evening poster drinks reception will run from 17:30 to 19:00 on Tuesday 24 September.

 
Sponsorship
