RTD 2021 Call for Expressions of Interest

The RTD Steering Committee is seeking proposals for hosting and chairing RTD 2021. Co-chairs will need to have attended RTD before and be very familiar with the conference aims and format. We are looking for proposals with a coherent research theme and a viable location (suitable for a conference of up to 150 attendees and with an exhibition at its centre), with evidence of the necessary resources to deliver this.

We ask those that are interested in hosting RTD 2021 to submit an expression of interest by the extended deadline of 16th August 2019. Expressions of interest in the form of a one-page PDF should be emailed to:

Proposals should consider the following.
– Who and what will be the hosting institution(s)?
– Organisational committee plans – who will be the General Chairs?
– What might be the potential conference theme, and how does this relate to the proposed venue and the RTD ethos and format?

Following the deadline of the 16th August, we will review proposals and discuss them with those who have expressed interest, around the development of their ideas.

We expect issues of conference budget and establishing roles of previous chairs as advisors will be discussed after the expression stage.

If you would like an informal discussion about an expression of interest with one of the steering committee, please contact us directly at this email address and one of us will get back to you to arrange a meeting as soon as we can:

Many thanks again for your continuing interest and support of the conference,
All the best from the RTD Steering Committee.
