This year, we are trialling a novel Meet-the-Experts format to provide a space for experts and students to come together in an virtual way. To meet the challenge of our current circumstances each section will hold an online meet the experts group meeting. At the meeting both mentees and mentors will introduce themselves and describe their research interests in one of two sentences. Following introductions, one or two mentors will give an informal talk about their career paths, and the ups and downs they traversed along the way, particularly focussing on their early careers. Mentees will be encouraged to ask questions and seek advice about any aspect of academia they wish. Following this mentors and mentees may ask questions of any members participating in the meeting. We hope that this will result in lively discussions and interactions that may lead to future collaborations or prompt new research projects.
