Social Programme


Conferences can be intense and lead to "brain strain" for some, so relief from the scientific programme is often welcome and necessary for recharging your batteries. With this in mind, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) have organised some great social events that will hopefully afford you the opportunity to meet new faces and catch up with your biometrical colleagues.

Please note that some items are here for the benefit of partner and guests of delegates to know what the programme structure is for both social and scientific activities.

Full details are in the PDF file.
