Highlights of the day – Monday 3 November

After thought provoking plenary sessions yesterday afternoon, and a grand opening of the Exhibition Hall with the Wrexham Tenovus Sing with Us choir, today is the first of two days of poster presentations. Make sure you use the Conference app to browse the science presented.

Today’s highlights include plenary presentations by Peter Kuhn, William Breitbart, and Cancer Research UK’s Lifetime Achievement award winner Ron Laskey. Look at their biographies.

From 10.20 you can join the 10th Conference celebratory talks. Designed to reflect on past achievements and future opportunities, today’s talks will be led by Mike Richards, Michael Stratton and William R Sellers.

The Exhibition Hall will be the social hub of the Conference today: all meals and refreshments will be served there and the Spotlight Theatre will feature yet more informative sessions and prize winning science. And whether you want to check out the posters, network, recharge your phone or indeed hear about the latest initiatives, services and products from over 60 organisations, this is the place to be. The drinks reception from 19.00 will be a great opportunity to make new friends and reconnect with old ones.

The retrospective exhibition about the last ten years of the Conference on the ground floor will give you yet another opportunity to reflect.

Several press representatives have also confirmed attendance – see the news section for the latest press releases about the science being presented. Cancer Research UK is also blogging live from the Conference. Read more here.

Finally, don’t forget to share your Conference experience via Twitter, using #NCRI2014, and enter the competition. The search for the best tweet continues – and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to win an iTunes voucher.
