Thank You – BCSS 75th ASM

This year’s 75th BCSS Annual Spring Meeting was a great success, with over 100 registrants and fourteen industry sponsors. Thank you to Simply Computing for sponsoring the Exhibits Draw with an Apple Watch.

We had an amazingly high caliber of research presentations and invited talks, including two exceptional talks from our Royal College Speaker, Dr. Abdullah Saleh.

Congratulations to the winners of the Resident Research Prizes for this year!
