Latest information for delegates

The BGA Chalk 2018 conference will be held at Imperial College in London on 17 and 18 September 2018. Full details of the programme can be found on the conference website here.

Over the coming weeks further emails will be sent out with joining information, but before then there are a few details that require your attention:

Presentation Guidelines

If you are an author, you should already have received an email telling you whether your paper has been given an oral presentation or a poster presentation slot. Guidelines on preparing presentations and posters can be found on the conference website here.

Accommodation at Imperial College

The most cost effective recommended accommodation is the College Halls of Residence and space is becoming very limited so we recommend you book it as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Further information can be accessed here.

Pre-conference Drinks Reception, Sunday 16 September 2018

There are still a few places available for the pre-conference Drinks Reception starting at 18:00 on Sunday the 16th September at 170 Queens Gates, Imperial College. This reception is free to attend for conference delegates, but places are limited. If you wish to attend contact the Conference Organising Secretary by email j.lawrence@imperial.ac.uk . Places at the Drinks Reception will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
