3rd Royal Society of Chemistry Younger Members Symposium
YMS2014 is a one-day event planned by the Royal Society of Chemistry Younger Members Network. Following the huge success of the first (Manchester 2014 and second YMS (Nottingh
YMS 2014 aims to facilitate the development of young chemists by providing them with the opportunity to:
- Present at a national conference
- Interact with emerging talent from academia and industry
- Network specifically with their peers
This year’s organising committee is made up of young volunteers from across the UK and employed in a variety of industrial, academic and educational roles.
There will be four parallel sessions held over a full day, covering all aspects of chemistry: Education & Outreach, Organic & Biochemistry, Physical & Analytical and Inorganic & Materials. Each session will have two invited speakers representing the cream of young talent from industry and academia. Invited speakers will showcase not only their excellent research, but also their career progression. There will also be several oral presentation opportunities and considerable poster space for each session.
We are confident that this symposium will build upon and surpass the achievements of the previous symposia, and bring the next-generation of talent from across the UK and internationally together for a day of science and networking. We invite early-career chemists from all disciplines and backgrounds to register and submit abstracts for oral and poster presentation. Registration for this event includes complimentary Affliate membership of the RSC (if required).
