The Christmas meeting is one of the most popular events in the BAA Calendar and our meeting on Dec 12 maintains the tradition of welcoming world-class speakers including Professors Gerry Gilmore and Lucie Green. As in recent years, we have moved the venue from Burlington House to University College London so we can accommodate more people. However, even this large lecture theatre still has a limit on capacity. As in previous years, to ensure a comfortable, enjoyable and safe experience for those attending we have to keep track on the number attending, hence the request to book at place in advance. The meeting is free for members to attend provided they reserved a place by November 20, as announced in the October JBAA and via BAA ebulletin. We had anticipated this would give ample time for those intending to come to register for the event to register for free (non-members who wish to attend would pay the fee anyway) and the £5 fee would encourage people to register early.
I do hope that you will still be able to come to the Christmas meeting, which I am sure will maintain the high standards of previous years and be a very enjoyable event.
