    Invest in ME Research added an extra day to their international biomedical research events in 2018. The new event is provisionally titled 'Thinking the Future' and takes place in London on 29th May 2018 (prior to their two-day biomedical research into ME colloquium on 30th-31st May and one-day international conference on 1st June) and is for early career researchers.

    ETA: to clarify that, whereas the IiME Research conference is a public (pre-paid ticket only) event, their colloquiums are closed workshops with participation by invitation only. For the Early Career Researchers Day, "all applications for participation will be considered by the committee responsible for planning the agenda, which will include existing young researchers."

    "An Early Careers Researcher is defined an individual who is within a few years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or their first academic appointment.

    This event will be open to postgraduate students and postdocs involved in biomedical research, and also medical students with an interest in biomedical research into ME.

    It will provide an international forum where research into ME can be discussed, ideas can be generated and a network built to allow opportunities for those young or early career researchers who are already involved in research into ME, or involved in another research area which may be of relevance to understanding ME.

    All applications for participation will be considered by the committee responsible for planning the agenda, which will include existing young researchers."

    I think the ME Association usually funds a few med students to attend the CMRC conference. Perhaps those of us who are MEA members should write to them and suggest they fund students to attend this event instead.
