The Gas Analysis and Sensing Group (GASG) is a company limited by guarantee and is run as a non-profitmaking organisation. The management of GASG is carried out by the Board of Directors and on a day-to-day basis by the secretariat, who is appointed by the Board.
The purpose of GASG is to:
- provide a forum for the discussion and dissemination of information about all aspects of gas analysis and sensing. This includes legislation and standards.
- stimulate the research, development and application of gas sensing and analysis.
To fulfil this, GASG:
- organises three technical colloquia (meetings) annually at different venues, bringing together manufacturers, users, research organisations and academic departments who share technical interests. These meetings include plenty of networking time and often a tour of the venue.
- publishes an on-line newsletter and proceedings of meetings for distribution to members.
The coverage of GASG colloquia is wide-ranging, covering all aspects of gas and, more recently, the closely related particulate matter sensing and analysis. In several past meetings, it has been possible to field speakers from France, Germany, Norway and the USA, in addition to British presenters. Up to the end of 2019, we have held 75 colloquia in 53 different venues.
GASG has had joint meetings with other organisations including the Sensors in Water Interest Group (SWIG), the other surviving Group from the initiation scheme in 1993; the Institute of Physics, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the National Physical Laboratory.
GASG has also funded publications by Robert Bogue & Associates on “Gas Sensor Research in British Universities” and “Gas Sensor Research in Europe”, which were issued free to members and assisted them in identifying sources of expertise and potential collaborators.
GASG also actively encourages research and development in the areas of gas sensing and instrumentation by the provision of travel grants to students wishing to present their work at relevant conferences both in the UK and abroad. Recipients are required to give a synopsis of their work at the succeeding GASG Colloquium.
