SAS generally does not organize standalone conferences, workshops, or networking events. Instead, we focus on finding existing events worldwide and supporting them with organizational assistance, social media promotion, and funding. The Society currently has an official relationship with the following upcoming events regarding co-sponsorship, symposium organization, or an awards program. See the next page for events that we have sponsored in the last five years.

The Great Scientific Exchange 2023 (aka SciX 2023 or FACSS 50): October 8th - 13th, 2023, Sparks, Nevada, USA

As a member society of the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS), SAS is the major supporter of the Art & Archaeology Section at the annual SciX conference.  The 2023 conference will be the 50th anniversary of the first FACSS conference.  This year, there will be three thematic symposiums in the Art & Archaeology Section: 1) Student Research in Archaeological Chemistry, 2) Historic Perspective and Recent Advances in Art Analysis using Vibration Spectroscopy, and 3) Analysis of Exotic Materials from Mummies to Mars.  SAS members are eligible for a $75 discount on the conference registration fee relative to the full price paid by attendees who are not affiliated with a FACSS member society.
