ASE Conference 2024 in pictures

Welcome desk at conference

We've had a fantastic three days at ASE's Annual Conference, which we held at the University of Northampton 4-6 January 2024. We've pulled together a few of our favourite images below and sharing a few words from ASE's Co-Chairs and Honorary Conference Secretary on their reflections on the event. 

‘There has been a really positive feel at conference with a strong sense of science community. As co chairs it has been  privilege to speak with so many members, exhibitors and speakers over the three days. We are already looking forward to next year and build even more of the same.’ 
Professor Leigh Hoath, Co-Chair of ASE 

‘Because of the train strikes at Sheffield last year this has been the first full conference since Covid - and it hasn’t disappointed. Friendly and engaging delegates, inspiring sessions all adding to the ASE community vibe.’ 
Dr Alex Sinclair, Co-Chair of ASE

ASEConf 2024 has been three days of workshops, talks and events that has enabled our ASE community to network and share ideas. There was a real buzz and excitement that was evident in the sessions and  in the many conversations throughout conference. This was our first conference for a while that has been able to run on all cylinders, without limitations from Covid or train strikes, and it was amazing to be there and be part of it.
