Conference planning and committee meeting…welcome to new reps!


Just back from a gloriously sunny Sheffield where Caroline Bland took great care of us during our committee meeting. Points on the agenda included, of course, plans for this year’s WiGS conference in Sheffield this November. We have received some fantastic abstracts from Wiggies – so thank you – and we look forward to a stimulating range of papers. Watch out, also, for what promises to be an excellent postgrad and early career researcher workshop….details to follow, so watch this space!

This will be a rather special conference as WiGS is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Special plans are afoot to mark the occasion and celebrate in true WiGS style!

It was our pleasure to welcome three new committee members today: Madeleine Brook has taken over from Aine McMurtry as IT rep; Simone Schroth has taken over as freelance and part-time rep from Charlotte Ryland and Caroline Bland has taken on the role of Treasurer from Karina Strasky. We would like to thank outgoing reps for all their hard work and dedication and welcome newbies to the committee!

Here we are a few hours ago:IMG_2264

Looking forward to seeing you all in Sheffield!
