2020 Summer Conference

We will be heading to the wonderful city of Swansea, on the 4th and 5th of June for our 2020 Summer Conference. Picking up on the theme of systematic reviews, the summer conference will give you the chance to explore the topic more deeply, with the chance for in-depth discussions and workshops.

Running across two days, the event will give you plenty of time to network with colleagues from across the British Isles, in both the HE and NHS sectors.

All tickets include the conference dinner on the Thursday night, and bed & breakfast accommodation in the conference hotel. We will update mailing lists – including lis-medical – with more details of the conference as they are finalised.
