 The Organising Committee for this year's BASAS Members' Conference, to be held between 1st and 3rd April at the University of Southampton, are delighted to advise that the registration portal for the conference is now open.

Therefore, if you are not a current member of the association then please renew your membership by visiting the following page if you are unsure about your membership status then please contact the Assistant Secretary at

The next step is to register for the Conference by visiting the following page

There is no early bird registration date.
