Lecture Theatres

Please note that this year’s meeting is well-attended, and as a consequence we will be using the Naim Dangor lecture theatre to accommodate those who cannot stay for a full session or who want to arrive late or leave early or during mid-session and also for those who want to take calls etc.  Those in the Naim Dangor auditorium will see / hear speakers as well as the slides, and will also get the opportunity to ask questions.  We ask all delegates to fill the main lecture theatre quickly, using all seats and not to reserve seats with coats or bags etc as these will be removed.  All speakers especially those in the free paper sessions should sit on the front row in the Guy Whittle auditorium.  Please refer to the diagram for an overview of the rooms and layout at the Royal Society of Medicine.
