for Physical Chemists by Physical Chemists



PhysChem Forum are pleased to announce our second Physical Chemistry Symposium, to be held at Organon Laboratories, Lanarkshire, Scotland on Wednesday 29th November 2006.

Participants will arrive for registration in the morning and the symposium sessions will be held all day.

The intention is to keep PhysChem FORUM as “sales-pitch” free as possible. All posters are welcome but presentations are reserved for non-commercial work.

Who Should Attend?

Scientists who have been actively involved in driving forward this area of the industry within their own institutions.


The programme will comprise a mixture of presentations and posters with ample opportunity dedicated to questions. The afternoon will be dedicated to a discussion forum and we will be encouraging questions to be submitted during the morning coffee and lunch breaks.


Papers for poster presentation have been accepted for inclusion in the programme, a book of poster abstracts will be handed to all registered participants on arrival at the symposium.

If you wish to present a poster, please let us know beforehand.

Symposium Dinner

We shall be holding a 'Symposium Dinner', including a key-note speech, at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel (the recommended accommodation) on Tuesday 28th November (the evening before the symposium).


Registration is now closed.

There is no charge for this meeting. The capacity of the venue means numbers have to be restricted to 70 registered delegates and attendance will only be allowed with prior registration. This number has been reached and no further applications for attendance can be accepted.

Please let us know if you would like to present a poster or give a talk at PhysChem FORUM 3 to be held at East Sussex, UK in June 2007.

Keynote Speaker, 7.30pm 28th November 2006
