Social Programme

We are organizing a variety of social events to take place during the Congress. We are aiming to provide networking opportunities in a convivial atmosphere while providing a flavour of Scotland (including a dram of Whisky here and there).

The opening ceremony will be followed by a free reception where delegates can meet up with old acquaintances and make new ones.

On Thursday evening we have plans for an exciting social event at an interesting venue with a sampling of international cuisine and beverages. Details will be announced nearer the time. As a clue you might like to look up what a “Ceilidh” is and we might be borrowing something from the Scottish “Burns Night” celebrations traditionally held in January. You won’t have to wear a kilt (unless you want to) but there will be some traditional fun to be had, intriguing facts to discover as well as quiet spaces for those who prefer.

Ambassador Programme

Attending EAWOP Congress for the first time can be daunting, particularly if you do not know any other delegates. We will be putting in place a support

network open to anyone who wants to meet others before and during the event. Watch this space for more details.

Fringe and Fun Events

In addition to the more formal programme of papers and posters we are organizing a range of experiences including quiet spaces and exercise

classes (a recent BPS conference featured ballet). Keep looking for announcements.
