The RSC Tokyo International Conference 2017: Analytical Science & Technology for Global Sustainability was held from 7th – 8th September. The Royal Society of Chemistry and JAIMA (JAPAN Analytical Instruments Manufacturers’ Association) jointly organised the RSC-TIC（Royal Society of Chemistry-Tokyo International Conference）during JASIS 2017, one of the biggest exhibitions of analytical and scientific instruments in Asia. The conference focuses on analytical science and technology and consists of invited lectures and poster presentations.

By all accounts, the 6th instalment of the RSC-TIC was another success. Across the two days, there were 277 delegates, coming from around the globe. The number and diversity of delegates made for some high quality poster presentations. As an official sponsor of the poster presentations, Analyst Executive Editor (Philippa Hughes) was delighted that there were 120 poster presentations at the conference. We would like to congratulate the Analyst poster presentation award winners:
