Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering – SERS: Faraday Discussion

The Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) Faraday Discussion will take place 30 August – 1 September 2017 in Glasgow, UK.

This meeting aims to set the agenda for the SERS field for the next 10 years, by bringing the community together to welcome in new emerging priority areas and embracing the diversity of approaches and disciplines which are contributing to the growth and understanding of this optical phenomenon, especially in light of new theoretical and experimental data. It follows the highly successful Faraday Discussion on SERS in 2005, which mainly focused on the origin of the enhancement and the mechanisms behind this using the information available at that time.

Faraday Discussions have a special format where research papers written by the speakers are distributed to all participants before the meeting, and most of the meeting is devoted to discussing the papers. Everyone contributes to the discussion – including presenting their own relevant research. The research papers and a record of the discussion are published in the journal Faraday Discussions.

You can register for the event here.

Submit your oral/paper abstract by 12 December 2016, the final paper submission deadline is 10 April 2017.

Submit your poster abstract by 19 June 2017.

You can check out the Frequently Asked Questions about the format of Faraday Discussions here.

Why not check out the recently published SERS themed issue in Analyst dedicated to showcasing the latest research in this exciting area of analytical chemistry.

Hope to see you there!
