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

The 2023 CCPN conference will 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.


Please register using our online Registration Form.

The registration deadline is Monday 5 June 2023.

Connect NMR UK bursaries

Once again, Connect NMR UK have kindly agreed to provide bursaries of up to £250 towards travel and registration costs for students and post-docs attending the CCPN conference. You can apply as part of the conference registration. Priority will be given to poster presenters.
