General meeting information

PSGB holds two scientific meetings a year. The Winter Meeting is a symposium on a specific topic with invited speakers and proffered poster presentations. It is often held in London. The Spring Meeting generally has proffered papers and posters with one or two invited keynote speakers. It is held at different venues around the country.

All members, regardless of career stage, are encouraged to submit abstracts for high quality podium presentations at the Spring Meeting and poster presentations at the Spring and Winter Meetings.

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

Have you thought about organising a PSGB meeting?

We are currently looking for people to volunteer to organise our wonderful Spring and Winter meetings in 2021.

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 (spring or winter), please contact our Meetings Officer Emily Bethell ( to talk about what is involved.
