2020 Summer Conference

Systematic Reviews: Demystifying Some of the Process

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are postponing our summer conference which was due to be held end at the beginning of June. The good news is that we will be running it next year on the same theme of systematic reviews and it will be held at the same venue in Swansea…so a date for your diary – Summer conference 17-18th June 2021!

We hope to have a very similar programme to the one we had planned for 2020, so we’re leaving the old detail up here just to show what a great event it will be in 2021.
See you in Swansea!

And in the meantime, do book onto one of our Watercooler Chats, volunteer for Show And Tell, or attend Mala Mann’s session on 4th June on Rapid Reviews – there’s lots going on over Summer 2020!

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.
