Annual Scientific Meeting 2024
13-14th March 2024
Join us for UKSBM 2024 – our annual conference and an excellent opportunity to get together and share our science, see old friends and make new ones.
We are delighted to welcome you to Glasgow, Scotland.
This will be our 19th Annual Scientific Meeting showcasing the best of the UK’s research in behavioural medicine.
This year’s theme is “Changing Behaviour in a Changing World”.
Our 2-day programme will include nationally and internationally renowned keynote speakers, parallel sessions, research awards, special interest group meetings, early-career researcher sessions, the Society’s Annual General Meeting, and opportunities to network and socialise (including UKSBM’s conference dinner, always remembered for its dancing!)
Glasgow is waiting to welcome you … easy to get to, easy to travel around, with some fantastic sights to see when you’re not in the conference! #peoplemakeglasgow
