We are excited to announce that the 2022 YAE AGM will be an in-person meeting, held at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona – Campus del Mar (Spain) in October. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the YAE, and we are very much looking forward to celebrating this milestone together with you in Barcelona! 

The 2022 YAE annual meeting runs across Tuesday 25th October from 14:00 to 17:30 (room 226), and Wednesday 26th October from 09:30 to 12:00 (room 206). It will be held at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Mar Campus – see Building 61 in this map: https://www.upf.edu/en/web/campus/campus-mar. We will be in room 226 on Tuesday 25th and in room 206 on Wednesday 26th. We have put together an outstanding programme that includes renowned invited guests, research talks by recently admitted members, and opportunities for brainstorming and exchange. This includes a dedicated Science Communication Lab with expert guest speakers Profs. David Budtz-Pedersen and Rolf Hvidtfeldt. Please see the full programme below.
