The 2015 Ardgour Symposium will this year be held at Persie House from 16-20th November 2015.

The EMSG is the Exploratory Measurement Science Group and has grown out of the University of Edinburgh's Department of Chemistry under the leadership of Dr Pat Langridge-Smith.

The group comprises a growing network of scientists and researchers, based around the world, who are interested in the development and applications of advanced analytical instrumentation. The group's aim is to encourage cross-discipline interaction and innovative problem solving between the users and developers of analytical instrumentation. Every group member is encouraged to help enlarge the network by introducing new people who can bring new expertise and perspectives to bear and so foster exciting collaborations or cross fertilisation of ideas between scientists of different disciplines who might not otherwise meet.

The Ardgour Symposium is one of the tools used to advance the group's aim by bringing together invited advanced instrumentation developers and users from a wide variety of fields, from within and without the existing EMSG, to promote innovation, problem sharing and networking in the field of analytical instrumentation.

Any field of science is of interest providing it can bring some influence to bear on exploratory measurement science and the development and applications of improved analytical instrumentation: including separation science, mass spectrometry, spectroscopy, computation, transduction, electronics and systems engineering.
