INVITATION  

YOUNG SPECTROSCOPIST / MASS SPECTROMETRISTS SYMPOSIUM

2018

The competition is on again between the North and the South!

YOUNG SPECTROSCOPISTS AND MASS SPECTROMETRISTS! 

The Young Spectroscopist Symposium is organized annually to give young spectroscopists and students the opportunity to present papers at a national level, provided the candidate has not presented an oral presentation at any international conference level before.

 

We are welcoming the mass spectrometrists to present and compete with us this year.

  

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in delivering a scientific paper and receiving valuable input from the judges in written format after the presentation. Papers may cover any branch of spectroscopy or mass spectrometry.

Students (undergraduate and postgraduate), as well as spectroscopists/mass spectroscopists in industry (less than 5 years’ experience) are invited to present their papers on the results of their spectroscopy-related research at the Young Spectroscopist Symposia again this year.

  

The event will be organised as two regional events (North and South) that will be holistically judged to find the National winner who will be awarded the The Albertus Strasheim Trophy and a prize to the value of R5000 generously sponsored by Perkin Elmer.  A second place rewards for the winners of the other regional event will also be given.

 

This year

   The Northern event will be held at the

PerkinElmer offices in Midrand, Johannesburg

on the 30th of November from 10:00.

 

(The Southern event details to follow)

 

We invite all members and supporters of the presenters to attend these free of charge event.


We further press upon our experienced spectroscopists to avail you as judges to these events. We specifically require one judge to attend both events to provide fair and comparable judging at both events. If you are interested and available, please let us know by 27 November.

Full details of the programme and venues (with directions) will be provided to those indicating they will attend.

If you wish to attend, please send your name and e-mail address before 27 November at the mail below together with any special dietary requirements.

  The South African Spectroscopic Society will consider providing transport assistance to presenting students who cannot afford to do so, on each request’s merit. Applications with full details of the student’s travel needs and an indication of other available funding sources need to be forwarded to the mail stated below.
