PopGroup55 is taking place from 05 - 07 January, 2022, and will be a virtual event with a twist!
This year’s organisers - the Earlham Institute, John Innes Centre, and the University of East Anglia - are creating a covid and climate conscious conference.
Following the success of Liverpool hosting the first ever virtual meet in 2021, the Norwich-led conference will take a distributed approach. We are supporting attendees to arrange local meet-ups - keeping the community spirit of PopGroup alive across the UK.
So, what’s happening?
We are running the meeting as a fully virtual event from our Norwich base. At the same time, we are offering encouragement and support to individuals from Institutes and Universities who normally attend PopGroup to set up their own local meet-ups.
As well as having the option of enjoying the conference from the comfort of home, you can organise your own in-person meet-up with friends and colleagues in your local area. We hope this will allow everyone to enjoy the talks and fun of PopGroup without the added risk (and climate impact) of travelling across the country to gather in large groups.
