Online Summer Meeting - 1st July 2022 - ABSTRACT CALL!

We are delighted to announce that there will be a summer PSGB meeting, on Friday 1st July. This replaces our more usual traditional Easter meeting, and just as for that one, the focus will be on the work of our student members and early career researchers. 

The meeting will be online but we are hoping that people will gather locally in-person (in ‘hublets’) so they get at least something of the ‘real’ conference experience. In addition to a plenary lecture and a workshop focused on a key area of career development, we will be inviting contributions for talks from students and early career researchers. 

To allow people at different stages of their work to have the chance to contribute and gain the most benefit from the experience, we will be trying something new this year in having two separate categories of talk:

(i) Contributed research talks – these are for where speakers have completed projects to present. 

(ii) Work-in-progress & project pitch talks – these are for speakers who are presenting preliminary data (or smaller datasets), or do not have analyses completed, or whose projects are still in the planning stage. 

Our aim is to provide useful feedback at this earlier stage of presenters’ work, and to this end instead of the traditional questions after talks, we will be inviting people to provide constructive advice and critique (for example to help with planned grant applications, analyses yet to be done, or in refining project ideas).

ABSTRACT FORM BELOW.  DEADLINE 5TH JUNE.

All members get reduced price registration for meetings.  If non-members would like to attend, it is usually cost-effective to join the Society at the same time.  Joining online is quick and easy.

Tickets can be purchased here

Have you thought about organising a PSGB meeting?

Please contact us if you would like to volunteer to organise a PSGB meeting - currently our meetings are being held online.  

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 to do! You do not need to have a PhD; postgraduate students are just as welcome. Showing you have organised a scientific meeting will also look 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, Andrea Dempsey ([email protected]) to talk about what is involved.
