AstroChemistry Young Researchers Meeting
To be held at
The AstroChemistry Young Researchers Meeting is a one day conference, organised by the Astrophysical Chemistry Group of the RAS and RSC. It is aimed primarily at post-graduate students and new post-docs, working in the field of astro-chemistry. The meeting covers all aspects of the subject, from observations and laboratory modelling, to theoretical modelling.
Students and post-docs are encouraged to present their work in short (15 min) talks or as poster presentations. The programme of talks and posters should, like previous meetings in this series, be an excellent introduction into the field of astrochemistry for researchers just starting out in this exciting field.
Previous meetings in this series have been a great success. The programmes for the last two years can be found here.
Registration for the meeting is £10 to cover the room hire costs, and this also includes tea/coffee, and lunch.
There will be a poster awarded for the best student poster.
A registration form for the meeting can be downloaded here.
