Prices start from £145.00

Early bird offer ends 12 December 2023

The annual SCI Formulation forum event will bring together the challenges, learnings, and future technologies of the tools for designing better formulations across different industries. The event will showcase the essential role of physical and computational technologies in the testing, monitoring and characterisation of formulations from early-stage research to market.
This event will be of interest to industrialists, academics and students working in the field of formulation science and product design, chemistry, colloids, physical sciences, analysis, pharmaceuticals, food, biological sciences and environmental sciences amongst others.

The programme will be confirmed in due course.

Call for Speakers
Contributions are invited to submit an abstract for an oral presentation at the event. The four session topics are as follows:
    • Analytical design and input – considerations from the start?
    • This session examines the tools, analyses and considerations for early-stage formulations. From physical properties, product design and high throughput screening.
    • Assessing your formulation in action
    • This session explores the technologies and capabilities across industries for data supporting the effectiveness, usage, regulatory and fit-for-purpose justifications of formulations.
    • Process Technology and scale-up
    • This session reflects on case studies showing the challenges and considerations for the scale-up; where in-process capabilities, process analytical technology (PAT), continuous manufacturing, non-destructive techniques and other technologies were implemented to improve quality and efficiency.
    • Emerging technologies and reformulation
    • This session explores the emerging and future technologies for the support of formulation design, characterisation, monitoring and manufacture.

An abstract of maximum 300 words indicating title, authors and institution/company should be sent to conferences@soci.org by Friday 6 October 2023 with the subject line “SCI Formulation Forum 2024 - Oral submission”. Presentation slots are inevitably limited and will be allocated to achieve a balanced programme

Call for abstracts
Contributions are invited from early-stage researchers and PhD students working in the formulation science field to submit an abstract for a flash oral presentation and/or poster presentation. An abstract of maximum 300 words indicating title, authors, institution and preference for presentation option (Flash oral presentation and/or Poster) should be sent to conferences@soci.org by Friday 1 December 2023 with the subject line “SCI Formulation Forum 2024 - abstract submission”. Presentation slots are inevitably limited and will be allocated to achieve a balanced programme – researchers will be invited to contribute a poster if submission is not chosen for oral presentation. Prizes will be awarded for the best presentation and poster. Please download an abstract template here.
The Innovation in Formulation and Formulation Science Award

This award recognises formulation innovations equally in both business and academia and acknowledges leading work where formulation innovation has delivered new solutions that lead and inspire the formulation community.

Submissions are invited from scientists, both in academia and industry, for formulation science and formulation related developments which are considered worthy of the Formulation and Formulation Science award. The deadline for applications is Friday 15 December 2023.
