Topics for future Society meetings

One of the major tasks of the BSDB committee is to select topics to be covered in future meetings and ensure that the meetings are well organised and successful. If you are interested in organising a meeting or have a suggestion for future meeting topics or formats, please contact the BSDB Meetings Secretary (secretary@bsdb.org).
