Chemistry and Materials Undergrad Symposium

Calling all Part II and III chemists, physicists, engineers and
NatSci's.....

Applications for the inaugural Chemistry and Materials Science
Undergraduate Symposium are now OPEN!

Are you a budding researcher? On the verge of becoming the next Brian
Cox? Or David Attenborough? Have you been involved in an exciting
project? Have a passion for a niche scientific topic? Or, just enjoy
telling people about all of the amazing science-related facts that you
know?

Then you should apply to share your achievements, innovation and ideas
at the upcoming student symposium. All you need to do is submit a short
abstract proposing your idea for a short 10 minute talk and you could be
selected to give an oral presentation at the event!

The Chemistry and Materials Science Student Symposium will be held on
Thursday 10th March 2016, 11 am ? 5 pm in the Pfizer Lecture Theatre,
Department of Chemistry, Lensfield Road.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided free of charge in the
Todd-Hamied Room and the symposium will be followed by a wine-mixer in
the Cyber Cafe.
The symposium will be attended by senior academics and is sponsored by
SCI. Participation will not give you your 15 minutes of fame, but is a
unique opportunity to stand out from the rest of your cohort and benefit
future study prospects.
Also, if the academic benefits and sheer joy of presenting to your peers
is not sufficient enticement, there is a CASH PRIZE of 100 for the best
presentation (75 for second place), and three ANNUAL SCI MEMBERSHIPS up
for grabs!!

Please, submit the abstracts to the email sciencesymposium2016@gmail.com
if you would like to be selected for this fantastic opportunity. Anyone
interested in attending the symposium (free) is also requested to
register by following the weblink (https://goo.gl/gPr3yt) to ensure that
sufficient catering is arranged for the event.
Please note that submission of abstracts closes February 25th, so don't
