The big event of the year is the annual conference - a three-day event in early September attended by between 500 and 1000 people and to which many members contribute papers, individually or as part of symposia. It also features the presidential address and other prestigious key-note lectures. These conferences are held early in September in a host university. The main conference is preceded by a research student symposium.
This year, the conference is held in the University of Glamorgan, 12 miles from Cardiff.
