The event is likely to attract 120 participants: a small enough gathering that it is possible for everyone to meet each other. Approximately 25% of the attendees will be students while others will be established researchers. Participants are expected from across the globe.

IPELS is a 4.5-day meeting with oral (review, invited topical and contributed focus talks) and poster presentations, and an exhibition. Ample opportunity will be available for networking and discussions. The exhibition will be held alongside the conference from Monday 24 August to Wednesday 26 August.

The exhibition will be table-top displays and will be located in the lecture theatre alongside the oral presentations. The exhibition is an opportunity for those companies interested in the subject matter to meet with academics to discuss the latest developments and techniques, and to promote their products and services. Exhibitors will also feature on the conference website increasing visibility within the wider community.

Who should exhibit?

  • Manufacturers or agents providing software or equipment associated with the subject matter
  • Publishers working in the scientific community
  • Employers of science graduates


The exhibition package includes a 6 ft table, two chairs and free WiFi access. Plus:

  • a profile of your company will be included on the website with your logo
  • a link to your homepage from the conference website
  • access to the technical sessions on the days of the exhibition
  • tea, coffee and lunch provided on the exhibition days
  • private dinner events with participants on Monday and Tuesday evening

The cost to exhibit is £650 + VAT if booked before 24 July and £850 + VAT thereafter. Space is limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
