Call for Abstracts - TWENTY65 Conference 2019

Date: 26th - 27th March 2019

Location: The Hilton Manchester, Deansgate

We are excited to announce the call for abstracts for the TWENTY65 Conference 2019 is now open. A slightly different format to previous years means that competition for conference sessions is higher than ever before, so don’t wait!

Alongside the conference presentations, workshops and seminars, we are introducing a poster display area for early stage career researchers, an exhibition space dedicated to early stage technologies (TRL 4-7) together with exhibition space for more established businesses. Taking feedback from last year’s conference, we have allocated time in the programme for exploring the exhibition stands, posters and networking which does not conflict with any other presentations or activities. It’s set to be an exciting, interesting mix of cutting edge theory, practice and solutions!

 Key note presenters will be announced over the next few weeks.

The Social Science conference and networking day will be taking place the day before the TWENTY65 conference this year, so don’t forget to book your place on this too.
