BELMAS Chair's Roundtables

Notice: Due to an unforeseen circumstance, it is necessary to postpone the International Roundtable with our Chair, Ian Potter. We think it best to reschedule it for the New Year and will send you further details in due course.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you and we thank you for your understanding. Ian is grateful for your interest in attending the roundtable and looks forward to hearing your views at the postponed event.

During his opening address at the 50th Anniversary Conference, our Chair, Ian Potter, invited members to join him at a series of roundtables he will be hosting around the UK, as well as one online for international members.

This is a link to the recording of his address in which he discusses a proposition he suggests could be discussed further at the roundtables. 

The roundtables will therefore address self-criticality and inherent biases and how to improve criticality within scientific discourse.

Ian will be joined by co-hosts local to each roundtable venue who are from BELMAS Council and beyond.

Please make a note in your diaries of the date of the Roundtable in the city nearest to you. They are as follows:

Monday 4 October  Belfast
Wednesday 20 October Online (POSTPONED)
Friday 5 November London
Monday 22 November  Cardiff
Monday 13 December Glasgow
Monday 20 December Manchester


In addition, there will be an online roadshow for the benefit largely of our international members and further details of this will be available shortly.

Ian really hopes as many of you who can are able to attend. Each roundtable will start about 11.00am and finish by 2.30pm, with the exception of the Online Roundtable which will start at 5pm. More specific details of the venue will be sent out to those who sign up to attend. It will have to be on a first come first served basis in case demand for attendance exceeds the capacity of the venue.

We will of course be adhering to health protection measures prevailing at the time of each roundtable.

Please sign up here for the roundtable most convenient for you to attend.

We look forward to meeting those able to attend.
