#RSCPoster 2019 – register now!

Hi #RealTimeChem & #ChemTwitter folks,

Yes, it is nearly that time of year again (no, it’s not #RealTimeChem Week just yet! But I like your enthusiasm), it’s almost #RSCPoster time!

In case you don’t know #RSCPoster is a Twitter conference that bring members of the chemistry research community (such as your wonderful selves) together to share their research, network and engage in rigorous scientific debate.

This year the event will be on Tuesday 5 March 2019, 09:00 GMT – Wednesday 6 March 2019, 09:00 GMT.

Please note! You must register to take part. Registration is open and can be done: here.

If you want to know (a lot) more about how it works please follow this link to the RSC Publishing Blog, which has all the information you need on how to take part.

Here’s also some quick information to give you the basics and all the subject hashtags:

#RealTimeChem’s #RSCPoster challenge.

You may have noticed that I, and by extension @RealTimeChem, am one of the General Committee members this year for the conference, so I’m going to do my best to engage as much as possible.

Now there was a considerable number of posters last year, but my challenge will be to comment on as many as humanly possible during the day, including an appropriate GIF. The challenge for all of you, if you choose to accept it (don’t worry this blog won’t spontaneously combust) is to do the same! Make sure you’re using #RSCPoster in all your replies and let’s help this conference get trending and spread chemistry far and wide on Twitter, especially in the International Year of the Periodic Table (so it’s it about elements use #IYPT2019!).

I hope to see you all there (metaphorically speaking)! Have fun everybody!

Please note that I would like to make it clear that I work as an editor for the Royal Society of Chemistry. Although I think, most of you know that by now.  

#RSCPoster: #RealTimeChem Challenge

Hello everyone,

Tomorrow is the Royal Society of Chemistry’s official Twitter Poster Conference 2018! It’s a great way to share and discuss chemistry like you would at an international conference without all of that pesky travelling.

This is the bread and butter of #RealTimeChem and I’ve challenged myself to post a question on every single #RSCPoster submission I can find:

I know this community loves a good challenge (although you don’t have to be as borderline insane as me).

So, I hereby challenge the rest of you to comment on at least 5 #RSCPoster contributions during the conference. 


Let’s get some great conversations started about the chemistry on display. Details about #RSCPoster are below:


Have fun!
