The 13th annual meeting of SRSM will be held at the M Shed museum in Bristol, UK, from Tuesday 17 to Thursday 19 July 2018. The meeting offers an opportunity for SRSM members to present ongoing work and engage in stimulating discussions about research synthesis methodology. The event will include the annual business meeting (Wednesday 18 July) and a selection of social events.
In addition, a pre-conference workshop ‘Causal inference for research synthesis’ will be offered on Monday 16 July, and this will take place at Canynge Hall, University of Bristol.
Dates have been selected so that participants can stay for the Bristol Harbour Festival taking place over the weekend after the meeting.
There are now limited places available on the SRSM Conference 2018.
Bristol is the eighth largest city in the UK, being home to approximately 450,000 people. The city has a rich history of technological and scientific innovation and is the birthplace of the Concorde supersonic jet, tarmac roads, beating heart surgery and the chocolate bar.
Bristol was also the departure point for early voyages of discovery of North America, and is (in)famous for having been home to a large slavery trade, pirates and a tobacco industry. The modern economy revolves largely around creative media, electronics and aerospace, with two major universities being located in the city.
About M Shed (meeting venue)
M Shed is the museum of Bristol's industrial, social and cultural history. Opening in 2011 following extensive redevelopment, the museum is centrally located in a dockside transit shed beside Brunel’s famous Floating Harbour. The museum's name derives from the alphabetic system used to identify each of the sheds around the port. M Shed’s collection displays over 3000 Bristol artefacts and stories, showing Bristol's role in the slave trade and items on transport, people, and the arts.
Our meeting room is on the top floor of the museum, with extensive views over the city and harbour.
About the University of Bristol
Our meeting host, the University of Bristol, was founded in 1876 as University College, Bristol, and obtained its Royal Charter in 1909. The University was the first higher education institution in England to admit women on an equal basis to men. It now ranks within the top 50 universities in the world (QS World University Rankings 2018).
The University’s Medical School is a major centre for research synthesis methodology, including eight current SRSM members, all based in the Population Health Sciences department in Canynge Hall. Canynge Hall is located in Clifton, the university district of the city. Opened as the Imperial Hotel in 1879, the building has apparently been occupied by the University since 1915.
Submission of abstracts is now by invitation only.

Registration for the meeting is £275 before 30th April 2018, rising to £325 after that until registration closes on 29th June 2018.
SRSM members are welcome to bring one guest, who will typically be a rising star early in her/his research synthesis career (e.g. PhD student or post doc under the supervision of the member); this includes a person who has the potential to influence those in less well-represented fields who might be interested in joining SRSM. Note that the sponsor of the guest must attend the meeting. Guests are not guaranteed a slot to talk, but we will do what we can to accommodate all submissions.
