20th Anniversary UK Automated Synthesis Forum, call for Speakers and Exhibitors

7 - 8 November 2016, Duxford, United Kingdom

The aims of the symposium are to share best practice and to review new technologies to facilitate innovation in the small and large scale chemical environment. The UKASF has been operating for the past 20 years and attracts representation from most major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as an increasing number of academic institutions. In addition, a number of equipment suppliers will be exhibiting at the event.

Themes for this year's event include:

• Synthesis equipment
• Photochemisty
• Flow Chemistry
• Solid Dispensing applied to synthesis screening and analytics
• Closed loop analytics
• Automated analysis software
• Emerging Technologies

The UKASF was initially formed in 1996 by Dr. Nick Hird, formerly of SmithKline Beecham, during the Combinatorial Chemistry era within the pharmaceutical industry. The group was set up to discuss the issues that were being encountered at that time using the automated equipment primarily for solid phase and array synthesis. The meeting has evolved over the years to include analytical equipment, new and emerging technologies including green chemistry. Attendees now include both academics and industrialists.

The UKASF committee is comprised of both industrial and academic chemists all of whom have a strong interest in new technologies.
