Faraday joint interest group conference 2021

29 - 31 March 2021, United Kingdom


Introduction
The Royal Society of Chemistry are pleased to announce that this event will be moving online. This web page will be updated over the coming weeks with more details. If you have any questions please contact us at events@rsc.org


Showcasing UK physical chemistry research

Welcome

You are warmly invited to join us online in April 2021. This Faraday Division joint interest group conference is the second in the series, the first in 2017 being a big success, it is set to be a highlight for the physical chemistry community in 2021 - and you can be a part of it.
 
The first meeting of this conference series was held in Warwick in 2017, and we are excited to bring the second edition online. 
 
Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry and their Faraday Division, this meeting will host some of the leading physical chemistry researchers from the UK. It promises to be a great forum for researchers to network with and build strong collaborations within their community and related disciplines.

I look forward to welcoming you on behalf of the Scientific Committee.

Scientific Chair

Themes

The programme will explore various aspects of physical chemistry:

Astrochemistry and chemistry at cold temperatures

Biophysics and imaging
Advanced imaging techniques for understanding biology

Excited state processes
Developing experimental and computational probes of light-induced chemical dynamics and reactivity

Machine learning methods in material property prediction
Recent developments in the application of machine-learning tools to predict and interrogate the properties of molecules, liquids and solids

Magnetic Materials
Investigations of magnetic and spintronic materials using theory and experiments focusing on analysis and new generation applications

Neutron spectroscopy and allied techniques
Neutron spectroscopy and related techniques, such as IR, Raman and NMR, highlighting current status and future perspectives

Next-generation quantum chemical methods: From development to applications
Recent developments in quantum chemical methods for calculating the properties of molecules, liquids and solids. Applications to model important chemical systems such as catalysts, batteries and enzymes

Photocatalysis
Theory and applications. Understanding how photocatalysts, be it molecular or solid, can accelerate or initiate chemical reactions when illuminated, including the discovery of new photocatalysts and new photocatalysed reactions

Photophysics of functional and solar cell materials
Light-induced processes in materials ranging from photoactive proteins to transition metal oxides, perovskites, nanoparticles and organic semiconductors with applications in artificial photosynthesis, solar cells and devices

Simulation and Modelling of astrochemical and atmospheric processes
Chemical networks, large scale modelling

Soft matter and biological structures

Structure of Molecules
Developments in the determination of electronic and geometric structure of molecules and intermolecular interactions using spectroscopic and computational methods

Recent Appointees in Physical Chemistry 2021

The Recent Appointees in Physical Chemistry (RAPC) meeting is an opportunity for recently appointed researchers in the field of physical chemistry to form a collaborative community, share experiences, and create a network of support. RAPC 2021 will be held as part of the Faraday joint interest group conference in Sheffield.
 
There will be an RAPC session on the afternoon of Wednesday 8 April. Participants will have an opportunity to present a lightning presentation of their research, and to share and discuss their experiences of becoming a research leader with peer-to-peer support and advice. There will also be opportunities to network throughout the conference, including an RAPC dinner.

RAPC attendance is included as part of the conference registration fee, so please select the option at registration if you would like to take part. There will also be opportunities to submit questions for the group discussion at registration and during the conference.

Terms and Conditions for Events run by the Royal Society of Chemistry

Bursaries

Travel Grants

In light of COVID-19, we are not currently accepting applications to our Travel Grant for PhD Students and Early Career Scientists. We will update our Travel Grants website with more information as it becomes available.

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. These grants have been supported by The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Chemists’ Community Fund.
 
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).
Sponsorship & supporting organisations
A selection of sponsorship opportunities are available for companies who would like to promote their activities at the Faraday joint interest group conference 2021.

There are opportunities to sponsor a virtual booth or sponsor poster sessions. A sponsorship menu document will be available to download from this page with more details and prices soon.

If you would like more information about sponsoring the Faraday joint interest group conference 2021, please contact the Commercial Sales Department at the Royal Society of Chemistry on solutions@rsc.org Sponsorship document
