Scientific Programme

ECR Poster and ECR Elevated Oral Communication Prizes
In keeping with the GAMES RESEARCH GROUP’s ethos of facilitating Early Career Researchers the meeting will offer prizes for the best ECR poster and the best ECR presentation (elevated from a submitted poster abstract).

For this purpose the BMSS defines an ECR as a scientist in the first four (4) years, or full-time equivalent, of their research activity - including periods of research training.

Meeting Logistics and Timing
The on-site BMSS reception desk (Great Hall, King’s College London) will open at 09:30h on Tuesday the 9th April 2019. The scientific program will commence at 10:20h and conclude at 17:00h. All posters must be in place before 10:20h on the 9th April 2019.
