MonoGram 2022

We are delighted to welcome you to the University of Leeds for MonoGram 2022.


Provisional programme now available

We believe we have organised a varied and engaging program to appeal to all sectors of the Monogram community. As Monogram 2020 was cancelled and 2021 went online due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are sure the community is keen to meet in person and we are anticipating that this meeting will be packed with excellent science and discussion. The meeting has been organised to ensure that participant safety is paramount, therefore the delegate number is capped at 120, with the lectures taking place in our 300-seater Conference Auditorium. We also understand that some people will be unable to attend an in-person event and therefore are offering the opportunity to join Monogram remotely through live-streaming of the talks.

Please submit your abstract for either an oral or poster presentation via this link, all presentations need to be in person.

The conference dinner will take place in the newly refurbished Queens Hotel in the centre of Leeds.
