Opportunities for Students

SciX is the premier conference for students to present their work, meet the top scientists in their field, and develop networks with professionals in academics, industry, and government, and with other students. FACSS and its member societies have numerous opportunities for free or reduced conference registration, as well as travel and other awards.

Building a Scientific Tradition Since Day One

Since its beginnings in 1973, FACSS has created a tradition of proudly bringing together leading scientists across many disciplines for scientific exchange.

FACSS has accomplished this mission through world-class technical programs, exhibitions, and a variety of informal networking opportunities. The meetings cover the whole of analytical chemistry with an emphasis on emerging technologies.

Over the years, FACSS has developed a loyal following of conferees from the U.S. and abroad who have traveled with us to many cities across North America. For your participation and continued support, we thank you.
