Check the calendar for a complete picture, including all the Interest Group meetings!

For  2022 we plan to continue with the Online speaker talks (using Zoom) every month until the summer.  Gradually more meetings will be ‘hybrid’ meetings – that is, a combination of online and ‘face-to-face’ meetings. Hybrid meetings are a little more difficult to manage, and so we have set some ‘advisory rules’ which we would like members to follow.  Please read them here.

Members will need to make their own personal decision on whether to attend any physical gathering, whether of an interest group or an Informal Social Meeting.
