IMG_3389.JPG Wessex Institute organises an extensive annual meetings programme, including short courses, seminars and conferences.

Short courses usually take place at Ashurst Lodge, whilst international seminars and conferences are held in many different locations around the world. The conference programme is particularly active and has brought international renown to the Institute.

These meetings are a product of the many formal international links and scientific contacts that the Institute has. Originally focused on physical sciences and engineering, the range of topics covered by the meetings has expanded to cover a wide variety of fields.

The Wessex Institute conference programme is particularly unique as papers presented at the conference are available in hard book format, in time for the conference, as well as in electronic format, where they can be downloaded directly from the web at All this is possible due to the proven skills of a dedicated conference division and the services provided by the Institute’s publishing arm.
