We are delighted to announce the Analytical Science Twitter Poster Conference (#RSCAnalyticalPoster) will be happening February 5 to February 6 2015!
The Royal Society of Chemistry Analytical Science Twitter Poster Conference is an online event being held entirely over Twitter to bring members of the analytical research community together to share their research, network and engage in scientific debate.
How do I take part?
During the event simply tweet an image (e.g. JPEG) which will be a digital poster summarising your research along with #RSCAnalyticalPoster and the title of your work. Throughout the day you can then answer any questions posed to you by other people on Twitter and ask questions about other posters. Make sure you follow #RSCAnalyticalPoster throughout the day as the conference progresses.
When is it?
Posters tweeted with #RSCAnalyticalPoster between 9am GMT February 5 and 9am GMT February 6 will be eligible to win an i-pod or RSC book vouchers. Make sure you ask and answer lots of questions to ensure your work is well understood!
Is my research area suitable?
The conference is open to anyone working in any area of analytical science whose research topic is in the scope of Analyst, Analytical Methods or JAAS. If you’re unsure if your poster is suitable for the conference, just get in touch and we can advise.
What can I win?
The main aim of the event is to meet new scientists, share ideas and learn about the latest developments in different areas of analytical science. The scientific committee will also select 3 posters which stimulate wide interest and feature innovative, high quality, exciting analytical research. The top prize will be an i-pod and 2 runners-up will receive a £100 book voucher for the Royal Society of Chemistry Book Shop. Do make sure you also ask lots of questions, meet new people and share your thoughts and ideas about other posters and topics.
Who is organising the event and how do I find them?
At different points throughout the day members of the scientific committee will be logging in to Twitter and searching for #RSCAnalyticalPoster to ask questions about some of the posters. Make sure you check back in at different times to see if you have any new questions and also make sure you ask questions about other posters.

Frequently Asked Questions (will be regularly updated)
Can I still publish work that is included in my poster?
Subject to the usual conditions outlined in the Licence to Publish, being a part of #RSCAnalyticalPoster will not prevent you using some of the information included in your poster as part of an article in a Royal Society of Chemistry journal. Please note this policy varies by publisher and if you intend to submit your research for publication elsewhere after the event, you should check the individual policy for that journal and publisher.
