The Society of Fluorine Chemistry, Japan



7th Fluorine Chemistry Young Researchers’ Conference

The Fluorine Chemistry Young Researchers’ Conference is held in order to deepen interactions between young researchers whose work involves fluorine chemistry in industry, government, or academia and the students who will be responsible for the next generation of fluorine chemistry. This year marks the conference’s seventh year (see below for details concerning the past six sessions).

The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for lively discussion and exchanges of views among participants with a variety of backgrounds through invited talks by professors who are active on the front lines of the field around the world, a poster session featuring work by participants, and introductions by corporate officials of their companies. Typically, the event serves as an opportunity for participants to exchange information about their research while getting to know one another through discussions that last late into the night. We welcome the participation of all would-be young researchers from industry, government, and academia.

【Presentation format】

Poster session (with short presentations)

Poster authors are asked to augment the poster session with a short presentation that is no more than 1 min. in length. Please refer to “Short presentation slide creation guidelines” below when preparing for the session.

The Young Researchers’ Conference includes a poster award. To be eligible for the award, a presenter must be no more than 35 years of age as of the end of the year in which the discussions are held and have never received an award from a Fluorine Chemistry Young Researchers’ Conference or Fluorine Chemistry Discussions.

【Short presentation slide creation guidelines】

  1. Create a slide with an aspect ratio of 4:3 using presentation software such as PowerPoint.
  2. Include the title, your organizational affiliation, and the names of the presenters at the top of the slide.
    (Example: Utilizing selective fluoridation reactions [Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Setsunan University] Ichiro Osaka, Hanako Hirakata, Saburo Nagao)
  3. Summarize your presentation concisely and clearly on a single slide.
  4. Do not embed video or animations in the slide.
  5. Name the slide in the following format and save it as a PDF file (.pdf): c “SP_University_PresenterNames.”
