Description

The King's College London ARUK Network Science Day is a one-day scientific meeting not only for King's ARUK Network members, but also for ARUK Network members from other London universities as well as from Cambridge and Oxford. There is no registration fee, but registration is required to plan for catering. Any attendee can present a poster and the best four poster abstracts will be selected for a 15-minute talk. The best 15-minute talk and the best poster presentation will get a prize. Abstracts should be submitted before June 1st, 2018 to karl.giese@kcl.ac.uk or joseph_matthew.bateman@kcl.ac.uk. Registration deadline is also June 1st, 2018.


We have an outstanding programme so we hope that as many researchers as possible will attend and present, and that we will have some great networking.
