Call for Content: BGS Autumn Meeting – Fringe
14 -16 November 2018, ExCel London

Repeating the successful experiment first run in 2017, the Fringe will be occupying space for your mind to explore alongside the main conference sessions

Do you read, write, draw, act, sing, code, build? Do you have a superhero alter-ego…?
This is a metaphorically* open space for you to share your passion with like-minded colleagues.

This is a call for submissions of all kinds to display, talk, project, play during the day.

Drop us an email by 12th September to fringe@bgs.org.uk with a short outline (no more than a page) of what you would like to do, how long would you need, what kind of space or props would you need? Acceptance will be based largely on these practicalities and producing a balanced programme.

Social programme
The conference evening reception will commence at 18.30 on Thursday 15 November and will include a light finger food buffet, entertainment, music, and dancing. There will also be a variety other social events held during the conference including the return of the BGS Fringe, drinks reception on Wednesday night post symposium, an organised run. Please indicate your participation in these programmes during registration and take advantage of the opportunities to rest and play while you work.

Accommodation
Hotels and accommodation will be in high demand during the 2018 Autumn conference. London will be busier that usual with the Nitto ATP Finals 2018 at The O2 from 11 to 18 November ​meaning travel and hotel bookings should be made as soon as possible.
