Linnean Society Student Conference 2020

Are you a PhD or Masters student involved in research linked to natural history? In this conference, we're inviting students to showcase their research in front of the public either through our public speaking or poster competitions. It's time to flex your engagement muscles!

Please note: For talks, you will have 12 minutes to present and 3 minutes of questions and posters will need to be A1 size (landscape) and follow a specific format.

You can submit for both a talk and a poster, but if your application is successful you will be selected for only one.

How to submit:
Submissions will open in September. Please check back for more information.

Places will be limited and booking is required.
