CeMoRe Annual Research Day

Date: 23 May 2008 Time: 09.30 - 17.00

Following the tradition of the last few years, there will be a CeMoRe Research Day in the IAS on Friday 23 May.

The purpose of this day is to encourage short presentations (10-15 minutes) from staff and research students at Lancaster, to facilitate the exchange of ideas and encourage new contacts and collaborations. Papers can be on any theme related to mobilities (broadly defined) and can be used to float new ideas, present research in progress or report on results. For more information about CeMoRe see:

In previous years we have had excellent papers from research students and staff in all Faculties of the University with very productive discussion.

All interested staff and postgraduates are very welcome to attend for all or part of the event. There is no charge, but please let Pennie Drinkall ( know if you wish to attend so that we can organise catering. Tea/coffee and a buffet lunch will be provided.
