The Macro Group UK Young Researchers Meeting gives PhD students and post-doctoral fellows the chance to present their work in oral and poster sessions, be inspired by plenary speakers from academia and industry, and network with their peers from across the UK. With support from our sponsors, we are hosting the 2017 YRM at the University of Edinburgh (19th-20th June) and encourage all polymer science groups across the UK and European countries to attend and showcase their work!
Faculty/Industry £50 Student/PDRA £25
The conference will feature both talks and posters by young researchers at PhD and PDRA level. Oral presentations will be scheduled for 15 minutes, including questions. Posters should be A0 for vertical presentation. Deadline for abstract submission is Friday the 19th of May.
The conference will be held on the King’s Building’s Campus of the University of Edinburgh. Lectures and poster presentations will be held in the James Clerk Maxwell Building with social events, including a Monday evening pub quiz, also held on campus.
These invited guests will all give exceptional talks about their research and career paths!
There are also lots of excellent accommodation closer to the city centre for those who want to experience more of the city. Excellent bus links connect to the city, with trip planning facilitated by the Lothian Buses app.
