Program for the 50th Anniversary HSP Conference

Full program now available, see below

The program is a mix of distinguished keynote speakers covering the broad range of HSP applications, contributed papers selected for their interest and challenge, two poster sessions and networking events and a Grand Conference Dinner in the world-famous National Railway Museum. It also features an optional training session on HSPiP given by Prof Abbott at no extra charge. There is also a special access Minster tour (with our own Conference special expert guide) for delegate Accompanying Persons at 11:00 Thu 6 April meeting outside York Minster.

Call for Posters continues!

We've got plenty of space for posters in the large conference facility. Please use the standard Abstract Template as an rtf file that can be brought (safely) into favourite editor such as Word or Open Document. Once completed, please save it with the file-name "YourLastName-Poster" as a .doc, .docx, .rtf or .odt and email it to Conference@hansen-solubility.com with Poster as the email subject.

Keynote Speakers

  • Prof Jean-Marie Aubry, U. Lille, on the predictive power of HSP in formulation science
  • Prof James Clark, U, York, on HSP for Green Chemistry
