BNASS 2024: The 21st Biennial National Atomic Spectroscopy Symposium

11 September 2024 12:00 - 13 September 2024 12:00, London, United Kingdom


BNASS (Biennial National Atomic Spectroscopy Symposium) is the biennial meeting of the RSC Atomic Spectroscopy Group and provides an ideal forum to encourage the exchange of ideas and knowledge in analytical atomic spectroscopy. BNASS will celebrate its 21st event and during its history, there have been some tremendous changes in atomic spectroscopy. These advances have been showcased at BNASS, which has built an international reputation for both the quality of the science presented and the unique style of the symposium, enabling delegates to meet and discuss issues in a social setting. The meeting includes a mix of established and younger speakers, and the organisers would especially like to encourage young researchers to present their results in short oral presentations within each of the topic sessions. 

Abstract submission is now open for oral and poster presentations. Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words within one of the topics below. Submit your abstract by clicking on the useful links or use this link:


  • New spectrometry developments
  • Instrumentation fundamentals
  • Measurement of nanoparticles and single cells
  • Speciation and metallomics
  • Biological and clinical applications
  • Solid sampling techniques e.g.  laser ablation, LIBS, GD
  • Environmental analysis
  • Food analysis 
  • Applications

Keynote Speakers 

We four fantastic keynote speakers:

  • Asst. Prof. Dr. David Clases, Universität Graz, Austria (Title:  Gaining new perspective on the nano- and microscale: Combining elemental mass spectrometry and optical methods to characterise single particles)
