Call for contributions to the LabMedUK25 programme

What do you want to see at LabMedUK25?
Which great speakers you want to hear from?
Do you want to be involved in organising a session at the Conference?

The conference takes place in Manchester 10-12 June 2025. The Conference and Events Committee will develop the programme from ideas submitted from members.
The committee will review all the ideas and create a programme development group to build the programme. If your idea is accepted they will work with you to develop it into a session. You can continue to be involved or ask the committee to do it for you. You can be involved as little or as much as you would like. 

Suggest a topic or speaker idea 

Is there a topic you think would make an interesting session or do you know a great speaker for that topic? Have you got an area of expertise you can bring to the programme?

Do you have an idea for a session that you think should be included. You will be asked for a session title, learning objectives, possible speakers and a suggested format. This information will be assessed by the conference committee and if selected they will review and develop the session with you. Please do not invite any of the speakers until this has happened.
