It is with great pleasure that we invite you to what will be one of the most beneficial opportunities for postgraduate students in the North of United Kingdom; Northern Postgraduate Chemical Engineering Conference, 2013.

The 1st Northern Postgraduate Chemical Engineering Conference will allow early stage researchers to present their work, both orally and via poster sessions, to peers in an encouraging and supportive environment, while still providing them the experience of presenting to the greater research community in a professional setting. This conference will bring together scientists, engineers, industrial professionals and students to discuss current challenges and establish new partnerships.

NPCEC 2013 also aims to encourage postgraduates as much as possible and to fulfil this aim, conference registration for postgraduates will be FREE. An exciting programme of keynote speakers, oral presentations and poster sessions will make this novel conference an important event in the calendar year.

We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle University from the 8th-9th August 2013.
