The archaeal community in the UK has been served by the ‘Annual UK Workshop on Archaea’ since 2002. It is generously supported by the Genetics Society and is the annual meeting of the Archaeal Sectional Interest Group of the Genetics Society. The UK Archaea Workshop is held at a different venue each year, most recently held in Bristol, and in 2017 it will be held at Lancaster University. The same format has been maintained over the years: an afternoon of talks by PhD students and young postdocs, a poster session with drinks, a conference dinner, and a morning of talks (again by PhD students and postdocs). The talks and posters will be given at the Faraday Conference Complex on the University Campus. Accommodation will be provided on-site at the University Campus and the conference dinner will be held in Lancaster city centre. Pioneering work will be discussed in the disciplines of microbiology, ecology and evolutionary biology, genetics, biochemistry and structural biology in the context of thermophiles, halophiles and methanogens.
