SCS Annual Conference, Call for Posters

The SCS would like to invite students and scientists new to the field of cosmetic science, to our Annual Conference to present some of their contemporary research. Free Conference registration to 10-15 people will be offered and in addition, one person will be selected for an award. A great kick-start to a career in the cosmetics industry!

How to enter

  • Submit an abstract describing your work to the Conference Scientific Programme (SP) Committee. Deadline for submissions is Friday 24th May 2024. Abstracts must be submitted in English (maximum 500 words, no tables/graphs in the abstract). The abstract should describe an original piece of scientific work and must not have been previously published or submitted to any other conference. Original research undertaken for commercial purposes is welcome, as long as it has sufficient scientific merit.
