4th-7th January 2022

Swansea University, UK

Welcome to the digital home of the British Phycological Society’s 70th annual winter meeting. As usual, the annual meeting will be packed with the latest advances in phycological research and provide an outlet for research across the whole spectrum of algal research topics. Through the special theme of ‘Harnessing algal solutions towards a sustainable future’ we will explore blue carbonfood systems, and sustainable industrial applications.

As a first for the BPS annual meeting, we’re pleased to be able to offer both in person and online attendance options, which we hope will provide flexible, sustainable, and access-enhancing alternatives. On this website we hope you’ll find all you need to get excited, registered, and prepared for the meeting. We are looking forward to seeing you – in person or virtually  –  on the Welsh Riviera in January.

Conference experience

In person

Join us in Swansea for the full conference experience, with unrestricted access to all sessions.

Many speakers will present in person, but those who cannot will be shared on screens in our conference venue and you will be able to ask questions via online chat. You’ll also be able to network with our virtual participants through a shared messaging forum.


We want everyone to have the opportunity to participate in the conference – even if you can’t make it to Wales. So we will be sharing a number of our key talks and presentations, along with the poster exhibition, live online.

As an online participant you will be invited to a messaging forum where you can access content, post messages and reach out to other participants both virtual and in person.


The BPS 70th Annual Meeting is being organised by a team of volunteers from the University of Swansea, led by Dr John Griffin.
