Abstract submission

The abstract deadline was 26th February 2021. Abstract submission for oral contributions, including the JEOL Student Prize is now closed. You can still promote your poster via Twitter during the conference using the hashtag #RSCESR2021 as detailed below. The conference booklet with all abstracts is now available on the Programme and Speakers page.

Conference Format and Video Submission

Due to international time-zone restrictions and limitations in the conference programme, presenters of ordinary contributions will be asked to submit a 10-minute pre-recorded video of their talk prior to the conference, with live Q&A sessions during the conference. Pre-recorded videos will be transferred in advance via WeTransfer and hosted on a private YouTube channel with the link only sent to registered conference participants, but we cannot guarantee full security so please keep this in mind when selecting material for inclusion.

Accepted talks will need to be delivered to the local organising committee at the conference email address using WeTransfer by 1200 (BST) on Thursday 8th April 2021.

For full details see the information file below.


This year posters are being presented online to download from the posters page, accompanied by a 3- minute pre-recorded “poster pitch” hosted on YouTube. A live poster Q&A session is taking place on Zoom on Friday 16th April, please see the conference booklet on the programme page for details. The password for the poster page and link to the private YouTube channel hosting poster pitches has been sent to registered delegates.

We are delighted to announce that the International EPR (ESR) Society will be sponsoring two poster prizes of $200, further details of which will be released in due course.

Only accepted poster abstracts will be hosted on the RSC ESR Interest Group webpages. However, in addition, we encourage delegates to present their posters on Twitter using the hashtag #RSCESR2021 throughout the duration of the Cardiff 2021 conference (no abstract required).

The format of the Twitter event will be similar to the 2021 #RSCPoster Twitter Conference, which takes place on 2 March 2021 (beginning 12.00 UTC, for 24hr). Please see the RSC website for lots of useful information about the format, including FAQs on poster format and tips for the “poster pitch”: https://www.rsc.org/our-events/rsc-poster/.


Accepted abstracts will be collated in the abstract booklet made available to all participants and downloadable through this website. By submitting your abstract you are consenting to distribution of your abstract to other conference participants in this manner. If you have any queries about privacy and the use of your personal data please contact the committee.
