FT-IR Spectroscopic Imaging: New Trends and Emerging Applications

Event Details

This conference will be a forum where scientists active in this field can present and discuss what they believe are the most important topics for research using FT-IR imaging both now and into the future. The event will be free for all students and will offer reduced prices for SAS members. We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend. Attendees are most welcome to present posters, please submit your poster title to Patrick Wray by the 8th June 2012.

The main entrance to the Chemical Engineering department will be obstructed by building work. Please see the map at the bottom of the page for more information.

How to Find the Lecture Theatre

The map shows the location of the lecture theatre in which the even will be held and the best routes from neaby public transport and accross campus.

On the day of the conference the entrance to the Chemical Engineering department from the walkway in the middle of the college will be obstructed, therefore it will be necessary to use the ground level entrance. Please see the PDF file below for more detailed maps. Posters will be put up around the college with directions.
