Analytical Research Forum 2021 (ARF21)

15 June 2021 12:00 - 16 June 2021 17:00, United Kingdom

The Analytical Research Forum (ARF) provides an opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers from analytical communities to present their work alongside high profile analytical scientists. This flagship event of the Analytical Division will showcase cutting-edge analytical chemistry and applications to stimulate new research, collaboration and engagement between academia and industry.

Our two, half day format includes keynotes and invited talks, panel discussions about careers in analytical chemistry plus additional oral contributions selected by the Scientific Committee from the submitted abstracts.

The poster session enables yet more participants to share their work in this exciting interdisciplinary meeting for the analytical science community. There will be an opportunity to view posters in dedicated sessions during the event.

ARF 2021 is not to be missed and the Scientific Committee look forward to welcoming you to the online event on the 15 and 16 June 2021.
