The 2018 EASST conference will take place at Lancaster University, which is set in 560 acres of beautiful parkland and lies approximately three miles south of the City of Lancaster. The campus is easily accessible via road, rail and bicycle. There is a direct train service from Manchester’s International Airport. You can read more about the hosts, the Lancaster Centre for Science Studies (CSS), here.
As the conference takes place on a campus which is a reasonable distance from town, we advise booking Unversity accommodation. The cut-off date for booking college accommodation is Sunday 10th June. After that date our allocated rooms will be on the open market, and we cannot guarantee you a room if you delay. Read more.
You do NOT need to be a current member of EASST to participate in the conference, although membership brings a discounted registration fee and membership is encouraged. To join EASST visit their website.
EASST has initiated a mentorship programme to help support career development for junior scholars and to facilitate networking and the exchange of ideas. We hope you will join as mentor or mentee and add yet another “meeting” to the conference! Being part of the Mentorship Programme is easy. It assumes a minimum of one conversation during the conference, where mentor and mentee discuss their work and mentees are able to ask questions regarding both research and career path. To sign up, please fill out the form below and we will contact you two weeks before the conference. Mentee and mentor can then arrange their meeting in Lancaster.
Contact Dara Ivanova (students(at)easst.net) with any questions.
There will be a doctoral workshop Invent your job, taking place the day before the conference. For more info see here.
