This year, due to the ongoing situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve decided to significantly change our usual spring Network Conference programme to support and engage with our CCS community.
This spring, we’ll instead be hosting a mix of regular informal and formal drop-in sessions each week, beginning on 30th March and finishing on Friday 10th July, with an ongoing programme of weekly virtual lectures (followed by a Q&A and discussion) on Fridays at 3pm.
Registration for this event has now closed as the Spring Series has finished. Recorded lectures, presentation slides and the posters are available on the Latest Web Series page. However, you may like to register for our Summer Web Series which runs from Tuesday 21st July 2020 throughout the summer. Find out more here.
