From January 2022, the meetings move to BRLSI, Queen Square. Sometimes, we may also use Zoom or another similar video mechanism to broadcast the session to those in the group who cannot get to a meeting.
We take it in turns to talk on scientific or technological subjects, and the talks are followed by, or include, questions and discussion. Sometimes we have a guest speaker or we may play a video or audio recording. We have a variety of backgrounds and the talks are pitched at a non-specialist level and are of popular interest.The programme so far arranged for this year is given below. You can also look at topics that we have discussed in previous years by clicking here.
