The annual CCPN conference usually takes place in the summer and is specifically aimed at PhD students and post-docs (predominantly from the UK). It is a small, friendly conference with an emphasis on practical details, lots of time for discussion and plenty of opportunities to get to know other scientists, especially during the now legendary CCPN walk on the afternoon of the middle day. Poster presenters from the UK receive a generous discount to make attendance as affordable as possible for young scientists.

2023 Conference in Glasgow

We are currently organising the 2023 CCPN conference to run from Thursday 6 – Saturday 8 July 2023 at the University of Glasgow. It will thus act as a satellite meeting to the 2023 EUROMAR Conference in Glasgow. As in previous years we will live-stream the plenary sessions for those who aren’t able to attend in person. More information, including registration, will become available in due course.
