Analytical Research Forum 2017 (ARF17)

7 July 2017 09:15-19:15, London, United Kingdom

The Analytical Research Forum (ARF) provides a high impact scientific meeting for the UK analytical community with both high profile speakers and opportunities for younger researchers to present their work.

Subjects covered will include the use of techniques from mass spectrometry and separation science through to Raman spectrometry, sensors and microfluidics, in applications ranging from biologically and medically related challenges to environmental analysis, art and archaeology.

Our one day format includes keynotes and invited talks plus additional oral papers selected by the Scientific Committee from the submitted abstracts.

The flash poster session enables yet more participants to share their work in this exciting interdisciplinary meeting for the analytical science community. In addition to opportunities during lunch and refreshment breaks to view the posters and exhibition, additional networking will be possible during an extended evening event which will include a buffet and end with a wine reception.

ARF 2017 is not to be missed and the Scientific Committee look forward to welcoming you to Burlington House, Piccadilly, London on 7 July.
