Speakers will be drawn from across multiple sectors and the event will be concluded by a drinks reception and opportunity for students to present relevant posters (information to be released soon).
(Please note that sessions are subject to change, due to many speakers having international commitments)

Titles Coming Soon
We would encourage delegates to book their travel as early as possible to benefit from advance rates. We would also encourage students to check with their University/College to see if there are any bursaries available to support travel. The nearest tube stations to The Geological Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London are GREEN PARK and PICCADILLY. One/both of these tube stations are relatively easily accessible from the main London train stations serving the rest of the UK.
Delegates should bring their own lunch. There are a number of places to buy lunch close to The Geological Society of London. Alternatively, you can bring and consume a packed lunch on the premises. Tea/Coffee will be provided upon arrival and in the afternoon break. A drinks reception will be provided following the conference.
We are very grateful to the Geological Society of London for the kind provision of a venue, refreshments and advice/support in hosting this event. To find out more about the Society and how to become a student fellow - please see their website.
We'll be exhibiting a collection of photographs from our recent work in the Himalayas.
