Future BALEAP Conferences

The BALEAP 2019 conference will be held at the University of Leeds.

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 2018, with full bids to be submitted by 31st October 2018.

For any further questions, please contact



We have received a number of expression of interest to host a PIM from member institutions, to take place from November 2018. We will announce here when we invite the next round of bids. If you are thinking of hosting a PIM in the future, please read on and check back, and keep an eye on the mailing list for the next call.

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.

Here is an outline of what is involved in organising such an event.


If you are hosting a BALEAP event, please contact the Web Officer or the Information and Publicity Officer to send you the BALEAP logo. Please use this in accordance with our logo policy.
