Future BALEAP Conferences

The BALEAP 2021 conference will be held at the University of Glasgow.

Here is a provisional checklist for institutions that may be interested in hosting the 2021 BALEAP conference. We will invite expressions of interest in early 2020, with full bids to be submitted by 31st October 2020.

For any further questions, please contact



Bids for hosting a PIM in June 2020 and November, March and June 2021 and beyond are invited. If your institution might be interested, please send an expression of interest to using the form below.

PIMs are one-day meetings, usually held three times a year:

  • End of February/March
  • June
  • November

Traditionally, PIMs have followed the format of a mini conference, usually with an opening plenary, parallel sessions of approximately 30 minutes, and a closing panel or plenary.  However, we welcome variations on this format and ideas for diversifying the structure of the day, providing that these promote the key aims of PIMs, as outlined on the proposal form below.

We invite anyone who is interested to complete a bid proposal form. This will help us to ensure that there is a good range of themes/topics and an appropriate geographical range of venues.

The following documents are available:

The checklist outlines the key areas to consider when putting in a bid.
