The SRF normally hosts meetings in the following pattern:

  • Odd numbered years - full residential conferences, usually over three days close to Easter. These conference revolve around a central theme and feature both keynote lectures, parallel sessions, our AGM and the Gowland Lecture (our annual public lecture).

  • Even numbered years - a shorter 24 hour meeting in late summer, usually on a single theme with a single speaker.

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic there will be a lot of disruption to this pattern. Please check here or on our social media channels for updates.
