SUSDG Meeting 2015

University of Oxford

Annual meeting of the Southern Universities Spectroscopy and Dynamics Interest Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry

Thursday 30th - Friday 31st July 2015

Conference Barbecue
Contributed Talks

  The next Annual Meeting of the Southern Universities Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group will be hosted by the Department of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, Univeristy of Oxford. The meeting is organised and coordinated by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, and aims to provide a forum for the younger members of the UK spectroscopy and dynamics community (graduate students and postdocs) to present their work, and to interact with one another and with more senior researchers, in a less formal environment. Priority of the oral presentation slots at the meeting will be given to younger researchers, and we encourage all such attendees to present their research.

The registration fee for attending this meeting is capped at £30, and is greatly subsidised by the Faraday Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Overnight accommodation and breakfast is available to attendees based outside of Oxford, at no extra cost, subject to availability. We look forward to welcoming you in Oxford on July 30th.
