Virtual MedRen

As you have hopefully seen elsewhere, this year’s iteration of MedRen has moved to a virtual platform. We still have four days of papers, concerts, and events – with plenty of opportunity for live discussion, across various different timezones.

The new virtual programme will be released publicly on June 1st, when our new registration will also be opening.

Registration will cost £20 for attendees, but will be free for students, unwaged, postdocs, and those heavily impacted by Covid-19.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.

      @Samantha Bassler. If you navigate through to the registration page on the menu you should see the details there. I’m still waiting on the final ePay link from finance so you can’t actually complete the registration at the moment. I’m hoping it arrives today. Will send another note around when it does finally open.

    Dear organizers,

    I am PhD student from the University of Valladolid (Spain) and I would like to attend the activities of Med-Ren 2020. Please let me know if I should send any document to formalize my inscription.

      @Ana López Suero. If you navigate through to the registration page on the menu you should see the details for registration there. We’re still waiting on the final ePay link from finance, after which you should be able to register properly. No need for any documentation of student status etc. though.

    Hi, is it now possible to reister? I have read the previous comments, but under “Registration” there is no menu. What I find since weeks now is only “Please register through the university’s ePay portal here. Upon registration, you will receive a password for the Virtual MedRen portal.

    [Registration will open soon – if the hyperlink is not currently available above, please check back in a couple of days].” Dos this mean that the registration is still closed, or amk I missing something?

    I am listening to as many papers as I can! This MedRen has opened up so many possibilities for future conferences. The chance to listen to these papers slowly, thoughtfully, repeatedly has been revelatory, and it makes me wish for the possibility to publish in this format. I think my students would respond really well to short papers (not many hit the 15 minute limit, but some did) presented by real people. I will be sad to see them all disappear later today. This Plan B has given us all a fresh perspective on virtual gathering. I miss the in-person experience, but this has its own strengths, and I look forward to seeing the outcomes of the hybrid conferences in coming years. May I suggest making the papers available at least a week before the conference convenes? That would allow more time for auditors to prepare and participate in discussion. Thank you once again to the organizers. You have blessed us all at a time when the feeling of being blessed is hard to come by!
