The 55th BSRG Annual General Meeting is being held at the University of Cambridge, hosted jointly by the Department of Earth Sciences, CASP and the BP Institute. The main venue is Churchill College. There will be a range of longer plenary talks, short 15 minute talks, and a strong emphasis on a poster session. We look forward to welcoming academic and industrial colleagues with interests in sedimentology, sedimentary geology, and related fields such as basins, modelling, planetary science, palaeoenvironments and ichnology to the key event in the BSRG calendar. It's a fantastic opportunity to meet everyone working in this area, present your science, broaden your sedimentology knowledge and discuss ideas with potential collaborators.
