In 2022 we returned to a physical in-person meeting. We had intended to have a 20th anniversary celebration 2 years before, when Covid-19 struck, so meeting served as a delayed celebration event lots of exciting research to celebrate!

The event was hosted in The University of Sheffield June 27-28th at The Edge venue.

We enjoyed great discussion over the talks and posters with over 100 attending the conference; most of these were from the UK with guests also coming from much further afield from Malaysia and Australia.

We were proud to award the Alan Wilson Prize to Prof Sanjukta Deb, and the Presidents Prize to Prof Paul Hatton. Very well deserved, and both gave excellent talks about their research and person career journeys (also Paul showed some nice car photos).

During the conference dinner it was also nice to gather some of the founding UKSB members.

We thank our exhibitors/ sponsors for supporting the event, which would not have been possible without their support.
