Description

York Science Conference 2019

Our first annual flagship conference provides students with a platform to discover new developments in science and technology from an academic and corporate perspective. The day will include keynote speeches, panel debates, and networking opportunities. Held at the Ron Cooke Hub, this location is an impressive, large scale venue at the heart of the University of York.

This event will be attended by students and industry representatives from across the UK. As of January 2019 confirmed speakers and workshops include pioneers from organisations such as Complexiti, NHS, QinetiQ, Illuminate Technologies, YHROCU and the National Spectrum Centre. Areas to be explored include gene therapy, scientific policy making, future applications of technology (5G, for instance) and semi-conductors. The underlying theme this year is ‘What will you discover?’. Our conference is open to the general public but is primarily marketed at students across the North of England. We pride ourselves on being the first student-run science-based conference in Europe giving us a first-mover advantage.

Notably, we're excited to be partnered with Supporting Women in Science (SWIS) and will be hosting a riveting and relevant panel discussion 'Women in Stem - Challenges & Opportunities', designed to break through to the key points of view and move the conversation forwards.

To conclude the event, we will be hosting a networking drinks evening to which all delegates will be welcomed warmly, to discuss key insights from the day, forge long-lasting connections and enjoy good company.


FAQ:


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

We ask that all delegates, VIPs, corporate partners and speakers have some form of recognised ID (academic/government/industry passes will suffice), to ensure that we know who is attending, in line with our Data Policy. As there will be a drinks evening with alcohol, we will be expecting guests who are fortunate enough to look under 21 to provide proof-of-age where requested.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

For those arriving by train, taxis are familiar with the venue (Ron Cooke Hub, Heslington East Campus). Buses regularly go to and from campus and the York Train Station. Parking is widely available around the venue, those with accessibility requirements please contact info@yorkscienceconference.com to enable us to suppport you. VIP parking will be on offer, subject to request.

What can I bring into the event?

The event has numerous networking opportunities, so it's important to present yourself well. We aren't rigidly enforcing any dress codes, though we anticipate most will attend in business casual attire, anticipating a day of exciting opportunities that may involve moving throughout our venue spaces. Smart, comfortable clothing is a good objective.

Within our delegate pack, we will aim to include writing materials and provide access to refreshments throughout the day. You may like to bring a small bag with lunch depending on whether you're having lunch provided by the York Science Conference.

In short - all we'd like delegates to bring is a sense of curiosity and excitement for what you might Discover. We ask that large amounts of baggage not be brought for H&S reasons, as well as the impact on how practical it would be for you.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

We have a wide range of approaches:

Email: info@yorkscienceconference.com --> For all queries, including those of a personal/sensitive nature

Twitter: twitter.com/YorkSciCon --> For any questions that you're happy to have in the public domain

Facebook: facebook.com/YorkScienceConference --> Feel free to message us, we respond rapidly!

LinkedIn: York Science Conference --> This is our more corporate platform, we're happy to receive questions/thoughts through this medium though.
