Session proposals

A list of sessions, arranged by theme, is given here. We are still interested to hear from people with idea for further sessions. Contact Kevin Murphy.

You are asked to provide a title for the proposed session which should fall within one of our themes, a brief explanatory abstract and to propose some co-convenors. Session chairs must be prepared to attend the conference in person to lead the session, but co-convenors can attend remotely (our conference will be fully hybrid). You are encouraged to build strong organizing teams and to keep in mind balance in terms of gender, career experience (we are keen to include early career scientists as convenors), geography, etc. One of the key roles for session convenors is to encourage attendance from amongst their peers. Colleagues from low- and middle-income countries ( will be allowed to attend the conference remotely, free of charge, so do keep them in mind.
