Networking and social programme

On Wednesday afternoon during the pre-conference day, there will be time allocated for networking. During this time, delegates will have a chance to mingle and meet each other. Light refreshments will also be provided.

Research ‘speed dating’

During the pre-conference day on Wednesday, conference attendees will have a chance to take part in research ‘speed dating’. This will be an event aimed to help researchers, particularly early career ones, to make new professional acquaintances and to explore opportunities for future collaborations. Everyone present at the event will be prompted to meet everyone else and to share their research interests. It is hoped that the event will help ‘matches’ (researchers with shared interests) to meet each other.

Cultural visit

The pre-conference day will end with an optional cultural visit. This will be a social event allowing conference attendees to explore York and discover its history. This is a ticketed event (not included in the conference registration fee). Registration opens in May 2023.

Gala Dinner

On Thursday evening, there will be a gala dinner which will provide further opportunities for networking. The gala dinner is included in the price of full registration. Those attending only one day (paying daily rate) will need to purchase tickets to the gala dinner separately should they wish to attend. Registration opens in May 2023.
