SOTS Meetings

The Society holds two events each year: a smaller Winter event which may take place virtually and an in-person Summer Meeting (usually in the third week of July).

Information about future meetings and details of the papers given at past meetings are available.

If this will be your first meeting at SOTS, take a look at the information for newcomers.

We also welcome proposals for papers, workshops, and other sessions at future meetings. 


Conference Grants

The Society is able to award each year a number of ‘conference grants’ (‘bursaries’) to assist those who would otherwise be unable to attend a Meeting. You should bear in mind that grants are for members or for persons who are seriously considering membership rather than for occasional guests, that they are intended to meet cases of genuine need (and so are not normally available to those who are in full-time employment), and that they are intended to ‘top up’ resources rather than meet all costs associated with attending a Meeting (and so the normal maximum for a grant is the package price minus the booking fee). An application form is available on the SOTS website, or alternatively applicants may write to the Secretary (Dr Richard Briggs, at least one week before the cut-off date for discount-price bookings for the relevant Meeting.
