2021 #RSCPoster Twitter Conference

2 March 2021 12:00 - 3 March 2021 12:00, United Kingdom

The #RSCPoster Twitter Conference is an annual online event held entirely over Twitter to bring members of the scientific research community together to share their research, network and engage in scientific debate.

Held online over 24 hours, the unique format removes the environmental and financial costs of attending a traditional conference, and helps scientific researchers share their work and network across disciplines, wherever they are in the world. 

Last year saw poster presenters from 59 countries sharing over 10,000 #RSCPoster tweets to a potential audience of 32.1 million. This year you can submit a poster in one of 12 subject areas, from analytical chemistry to engineering. Posters win prizes if chosen by the subject chairs.

Register now to take part on 2 March at 12:00 UTC, and help us to spread the word.

#RSCPoster a conference with clear advantages...

Whatever your research
Share a poster in any chemical science-related subject and gather interdisciplinary reactions
However you work
Being online, you can contribute wherever you are in the world – no travel or attendance fees
Uniting the global scientific community
Debate important research with scientists from all over the world, at every career stage

How it works:

Register to submit a poster (Registration opens from January 2021)
Tweet your poster with a title, #RSCPoster and relevant subject hashtag(s)
Discuss and engage – throughout the 24h conference; make sure to answer the questions from the community, committee and comment on other #RSCPosters
Win prizes if your #RSCPoster is deemed best by subject Chairs


New for 2021, we're delighted to introduce #RSCPosterPitch.

At a physical conference, you would usually get the chance to stand next to your poster and give a quick presentation to the judges in person, highlighting the most important and exciting parts of your research in a quick, accessible way. #RSCPosterPitch is designed to work in this same way, as a video pitch to accompany your main #RSCPoster.

You can film yourself on any device, and upload in the captions alongside your poster together with the hashtag #RSCPosterPitch. This can be done in any style, any language (although note that the Subject Chairs will be judging in English, so you might want to give an English version if possible) from a regular speech to a special song, just so long as it’s kept short (ideally no longer than 60 seconds) as our judges will have lots of posters to look at!

#RSCPosterPitch is optional, so you don’t have to submit a pitch for your poster to take part in #RSCPoster. 


This year, we are excited to also be announcing #RSCPosterLive, a series of live webinars accompanying the main poster event. These webinars will discuss some of the important issues faced by chemical scientists throughout their career.

For the 2021 event, the webinar schedule will be as follows:
11:00 UTC 2 March – Choosing Your Supervisor
12:00 UTC 2 March – #RSCPoster Twitter Conference Opens - head to Twitter to see the first posters and upload yours!
14:00 UTC 2 March – Pathways to Professor
18:00 UTC 2 March – Mental health in Chemical Science

For more details, full speaker line ups and to register, please see the Linked event section

(Please note, registering for the webinars will not automatically register you to present a poster at #RSCPoster and vice versa.)
