The RACI Research and Development Topics conference was founded in 1992 by Professor Neil W. Barnett of Deakin University. Based initially on the Analytical Research Forum run by the Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK, RACI R&D Topics was first held in 1993 at Deakin. It has since grown to include fifteen universities from across Australia, attracting in excess of 100 delegates annually.
RACI R&D Topics conference is organized primarily by postgraduate students of the hosting university. It provides an opportunity for honours, masters, PhD students and early researchers in industry to present research in the fields of analytical and/or environmental chemistry at a highly regarded meeting.
In its 22nd year the RACI R&D Topics conference continues to showcase the current and developing research of Australia’s newest scientific minds.
