Have you thought about organising a PSGB meeting?
Please get in contact if you or your organisation would like to host the next PSGB meeting!
Organising a meeting will not only help PSGB, but will also provide you with opportunities to create a partially themed meeting that may have a particular bearing on your own work, or to invite speakers who have inspired your own research. It is also fun! You do not need to have a PhD; postgraduate students are just as welcome. Showing you have organised a scientific meeting will looks great on your CV.
We have guidelines that can help you plan and structure your meeting and a team of experienced people who can provide you with advice.
If you would like organise a future meeting (summer or winter), please contact our Meetings Officer, Shannon Farrington ([email protected]) to talk about what is involved or to be inspired by past programmes from past meetings.
