Programme of Meetings

The objectives of The Society have been pursued with a long tradition of scientific meetings. The scope of these meetings has evolved to accommodate changing emphasis in research. Although the majority of meetings are held in London, The Society also organises meetings at other centres in the UK and, occasionally, outside the UK. Anyone interested, whether a member or not, is always welcome to attend. Offers of presentations are always welcome: contact the organiser of the meeting.
