The meetings are free to attend! We raise money through the generous support of sponsors for refreshments and venue hire. Sponsors are offered the opportunity to suggest a plenary research presentation or present a short (10min) sales talk.
Yes! Thanks again to the support of our sponsors, we are able to provide a sandwich buffet lunch, refreshments, and pizza and drinks to end. We try our best to get a range of refreshments to support diverse dietary requirements, but please let us know in advance if you have any specific needs.
We are always looking for new speakers - from PhD candidates to senior scientists within proteomics. We recruit speakers through personal invitations/networking, suggestions from deligates and from people contacting us directly. If you would like to present at a meeting, we would be delighted to hear from you, please get in touch at email@example.com
Registration is not essential, but it is very helpful for us to arrange catering and venues to ensure we don't over/under spend. In some cases, where space is limiting, registration may be essential and we will advertise this. If in doubt - register!
We do not have any funding to support delegates. However, if you are speaking, it may be possible to get a travel grant from the British Society for Proteome Research (BSPR). In some instances, we may be able to subsidise travel costs for speakers, but this is dependant on sponsorship for that meeting.
The organising committee is made up of early career (including PhD candidates) and more experienced scientist from academia and industry. We are very keen to have a bredth of backgrounds and experience on the committee, so if you would like to be involved, please get in touch by speaking to a committee member at a meeting, or emailing us - we would like to hear from you!
Our meetings are focused on proteomics and the delegates include proteomics-users from academia and industry. Therefore, at these meetings, there is a "captured audience" of possible clients. Sponsoring our meeting will allow you to present your product or service to a concentrated group of possible users. These meetings are only possible with sponsorship, and you will be contributing to the dissemination of science, and potentially meeting talented future employees through networking.
We have a range of options for meeting sponsorship. To sponsor a meeting, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will be delighted to hear from you.
Yes! Just like our physical meetings, our webinars are completely free to attend.
Please register for our meeting in the normal way (click here). A link will be emailed to you prior to the meeting starting with instructions on how to join. Alternatively, a join link for the webinar will also be posted here immediately prior to it starting. For webinars run as a Microsoft Live Event, find instructions on how to join here, or using Zoom here.
The discussion will be mediated by the chairperson who will take questions from all attendees. The best way to contribute during the talk and to post questions is through our slack account.
The meetings are recorded and will be posted to our archive page.
The webinars are put on with the generous support academic institutions (as indicated in the webinar acknowledgements). We may accept sponsorship for webinars to allow us to run competitions and maintain our ability to put on free meetings in high quality venues. Webinar sponsors get the opportunity of a short presentation at the beginning of the webinar, and we may disseminate some information through our mailing list after the event. Sponsorship does not represent endorsement by LPDG or its affiliates.
