The main event in the life of the society each year is the annual conference, held each September. The conference includes plenary papers from international experts in the field. There are also short papers and discussion groups, and morning and evening prayer. The weekend aims to be marked by collegiality and new friendships, with numerous opportunities for relaxed discussions in pleasant surroundings with good food.
Further information on the 2020 conference will be forthcoming soon.
