MSDE Symposium 2023: Frontiers in Molecular Engineering

18 May 2023, London, United Kingdom

Join us for this exciting hybrid 1-day symposium, sponsored by Molecular Systems Design & Engineering. Discover how molecular engineering approaches are driving significant breakthroughs across a broad range of research disciplines and applications, with a particular focus on sustainable development goals. 

The programme will feature invited speakers across a broad range of molecular engineering research areas. The invited speakers will also be complemented by a poster session to provide further networking opportunities and discussion for all attendees. Finally, a panel discussion focusing on defining and reviewing the growing area of molecular engineering will be held.
We hope the event will provide ample opportunities to network and engage with the speakers, members of the MSDE Editorial Board and other attendees. Join us for some exciting discussions and to share your ideas with key members of the molecular engineering community.
Abstract Submission

Poster abstracts

Poster submission has now closed.

Posters are displayed throughout the meeting, both in-person and virtually. As this symposium is being planned as a hybrid event we will be using a dedicated online poster platform to show all posters.

Poster presenters who are attending the symposium in-person will also need to print and display their poster physically. If your poster is accepted for this event, you will receive an email from us with further information for those attending in-person and inviting you log on to the poster platform where you will be able to upload a PDF of your poster.

Additional Information

All poster abstracts will be reviewed and authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process within about 4 weeks of the submission deadline. The abstracts should be no longer than one A4 page in portrait layout. Please ensure you provide the details of the presenting author.
