Armstrong Beattie Memorial Symposium
The Armstrong Beattie Memorial Symposium will be held on Monday September 26, 2022, in Chemistry Lecture Theatre 3. It is proposed as an in-person event, subject to any local COVID restrictions.
The scientific presentations of the Symposium will run from 9am to 5.15pm and be followed by a dinner in the Refectory, Holme Building (Science Road) from 6 to 9pm.
We would be delighted if you are able to join us for either or both the lectures and dinner. Participants can register via Eventbrite.
