    The theme of this year’s autumn conference is ‘waste’, and was a top topic suggested by last year’s delegates.

    If you have carried out a waste management, recycling, or sustainability initiative and would like to share the outcomes with reference to safety aspects at the Autumn Symposium, then the ISTR Executive Committee would like to hear from you.

    We would like selected members to give a 15 minute presentation (10 mins talk and 5 mins questions) on their experiences. The initiative may have been a roaring success, or perhaps you learned things that you’d like to share and help others planning a similar event/campaign. Maybe your project has stalled and you would like help from delegates to make further progress. Selected speakers will have their delegate rate waived for the day (travel and accommodation will not be reimbursed).

    What to do next

    Submit the title of your talk and a short abstract (max 200 words) describing content to the event secretary Catherine Davidge at by 5pm Wednesday 18th September, including ‘Call for abstracts’ in the email Subject heading. The Executive Committee will agree four talks to include and their decision will be final.

    The EC look forward to hearing from you.
