Latest news: Nottingham 2014 makes an impact!

Thanks to the Nottingham Organising Committee for hosting another memorable scientific meeting and thank you to all the delegates who attended making this the biggest BESS conference yet! 

We saw a record number of registrations at 708 up nearly 14% on last year.  We admitted 62 new members; awarded 5 fellowships and 5 prizes for best podium and poster presentations; voted 4 members into postions on council (see website for details); and the location of our next two meetings after Sheffield 2015 were decided (Dublin: 2016 and Coventry: 2017). The membership also voted to discontinue with the Members’ Dinner. 

We hope you all enjoyed the meeting and look forward to seeing you all in Sheffield next year!
