Today (30 June) marks the formal establishment of The International Society for Clinical Spectroscopy. This learned society aims to develop the transition of IR and Raman spectroscopies into a clinical setting. An equally important role is to support the SPEC conference series.
Further information on the society, operating under the CLIRSPEC banner, will be made later, including details of a launch event and joining instructions.
The abstract deadline for oral contributions is fast approaching for submissions to next year’s Faraday Discussion on Advanced Vibrational Spectroscopy for Biomedical Applications.
|Oral abstract deadline ||06 July 2015
|Full paper submission deadline||02 November 2015
|Poster abstract deadline ||11 January 2016
|Early bird registration deadline ||01 February 2016
|Pre-prints to delegates ||June 2016
|Standard registration deadline||22 February 2016
The early deadline is due to the format of a Faraday Discussion. Research papers are reviewed upon submission and are sent to all delegates 4 weeks before the meeting so they can be read in advance. At the meeting the presenting author is allowed five minutes to highlight the main points of their paper, and the rest of the time is for discussion. The discussion is recorded and will be published alongside the research paper in the Faraday Discussion Volume.

Claudia has kindly placed slides from her excellent presentation at the Exeter CLIRCON meeting online. They can be found on arXiv together with the related paper.
Registration is now open for the ECSBM 2015 (www.ecsbm2015.de) to be held from September 6th – 10th 2015 at Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany.
Main topics of the 16th ECSBM will be molecular reaction mechanisms and interactions of proteins monitored by time-resolved spectroscopy, especially time-resolved FTIR. In addition vibrational imaging of cells and tissue by FTIR and Raman imaging will be in the focus. The application of these techniques in diagnostics of diseases will be presented. Beside vibrational spectroscopy also high resolution techniques in fluorescence spectroscopy, near field spectroscopy, ESR and NMR will be a topic.
It would be a great pleasure, if you would find time to come.

Local Organising Committee
Post Doctoral Research Associate on full field IR microscopy via Focal Plane Array (FPA) detector at MIRIAM beamline B22 of Diamond.
Further information is available at:
Deadline: 22 March 2015
Duration: 3 years
The PDRA will first implement a new optics scheme designed to further exploit the SR brightness advantage via the use of high magnification objectives. He/she is then expected to perform in-house/collaborative research within the widest fields of IR applications, from biomedicine to life sciences in general.
