Is the Society contacting all its members? (the 'Hands up if you can't hear me' request) As we are using a new e-mail system for contacting members, we should be very grateful if you could check with any colleagues whom you know or think are members whether they have received this email. We will know if it is 'undeliverable' but not if it is delivered but filtered straight into your spam box.
Please help by keeping us up to date with your contact details, especially your email address. You can update your details online or contact the membership secretary directly.
Annual Scientific Meeting: London, 12-14 September 2012
2012's Annual Scientific Meeting was held Wednesday 12th to Friday 14th September 2012 in London.
|Brighton||11-13 September 2013|
The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is designed to facilitate the reporting of new research findings, providing opportunities for younger members to present in a relaxed, friendly environment and also allowing for presentations from established names in epidemiology and health services research. It provides excellent opportunities for networking, developing and maintaining friendships and enjoying the experience.
The meetings usually last three days and include one or two plenary lectures from invited speakers, several highlighted talks from the authors of the top scoring abstracts (according to committee review) and parallel themed talks. There are also two lectures named after, Archie Cochrane and John Pemberton, given by well known speakers. In addition there are always a number of poster presentations which can be viewed throughout the conference. One of the afternoons is kept free and delegates can choose between attending one of a number of workshops organised by society members or other society and trips around the local area.
The ASM moves around the universities of the UK and Ireland each year and is occasionally held jointly with the IEA-Europe (the European Region section of the International Epidemiological Association).
In addition to the ASM, the society runs a number of one-day meetings/workshops throughout the year. These can be organised by any member and are commonly held jointly with another society. Topics can include any aspect of health services research, epidemiology, or related theme and can be held throughout the country.
If you are interested in running a workshop, either at the ASM or as a one-day meeting, have a look at the guidelines which should provide you with all the information you need.
