Meetings

The society hosts two meetings each year, the annual meeting, usually in March, and the autumn meeting in November. Both occasions start with a formal meeting where the members are updated on the recent activities of the society, discuss changes and upcoming publications. When the meeting is closed an invited guest speaker gives a speech followed by an informal dinner.

Upcoming planned meetings:

The autumn meeting will be held online on
November 19th at 17:00

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the dinner is cancelled. Link to the Zoom meeting will be sent to all members a few days before the event.

Contact linus.soderquist@ebc.uu.se if you do not receive it.
