TMS Annual Conference 2021

We are looking for volunteers to host next year’s Annual Conference! The Annual Conference takes place in November and typically consists of a day of keynote speakers, Society business and the conference dinner (in case of a physical meeting), followed by a day of talks and posters. We hope that by this time next year we will be able to have a physical meeting again, but if the situation requires a (partly) virtual meeting, TMS will be able to assist with setting up a virtual platform. 

As many past meetings have been UK-based, we are now looking for a location outside the UK. If you would like to volunteer to host the meeting in November 2021, please send a short (<5 min) promotion video about your proposed meeting location to events@tmsoc.org. This can be very simple, such as powerpoint slides with recorded audio. Useful information to include are potential venues, possible accommodation options (e.g. affordable options for students) and travel information. Green transport options such as trains are a plus! Deadline for submission is 31 December.

In January all videos will be published through the TMS channels for members to vote on their favourite location. The winning location will be announced by the end of January. If you have any questions please email the Events Secretary Anieke Brombacher (events@tmsoc.org)
