UPDATE: MEGUK2020 postponed until further notice
After close monitoring of the latest COVID-19 developments, we have regrettably decided to postpone MEGUK2020 until further notice. Given the circumstances, we believe that this is the safest and most responsible thing to do. Our thoughts and solidarity go out to those affected and we sincerely hope that the situation will improve soon.
For those of you who have already registered, we will be in touch shortly with refund instructions. Please be patient, as it will take some time to accomplish this.
We do apologise for any inconvenience caused by the short notice, and we thank you for understanding our decision. If you have further questions please feel free to contact us at MEUGK2020@mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk.
With kindest regards,
The organising committee
The MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit is pleased to announce that the next MEGUK conference will be held in Cambridge (Magdalene College) on the 6-7 April 2020. We have an exciting line-up of keynote speakers, and we strongly support the application for presentations and posters from early career researchers.
To encourage participation from junior scientists, and inclusivity across research centres, we will offer a small number of travel awards to help postgraduate students with outstanding abstract submissions cover their travel costs. We will also award a prize for the best poster presentation.
How to attend
Delegate registration cost is £5 and includes lunches and refreshments.
The social event will consist of a candlelit dinner at Magdalene College’s Hall. Attendance to the dinner is optional and at a subsidised cost of £20. Since the College’s Hall can only accommodate 110 people, tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
You can enjoy the opportunity to stay at one of Cambridge’s colleges (such as Robinson, Westminster, and many more). Or you can stay at the Felix Hotel, the Hilton Cambridge City Centre, or the Varsity Hotel.
Organisers: Alessandro Tomassini, Laura Hughes, Olaf Hauk, Rik Henson, Kanad Mandke, Diandra Brkic, Natalie Adams, Roma Siugzdaite, Clare Cook
