Welcome to the BSST's Meetings Page
Here you will find out about our meetings and be able to access whatever papers are available on-line.
We hold two meetings per year : a Spring meeting in London which is also the AGM of the Society and and Autumn meeting elsewhere, typically at a location with some relevance to the sugar industry. Over the years we have been to sites as diverse as Tate & Lyle Thames Refinery, the Brewing Museum in Burton, the Thames Barrier, British Sugar Wissington, Didcot Rail Museum [2004 : the Bicentennial of rail] and even Calais Sugar Terminal. The AGM is usually on the second Thursday following Easter and the ATM is typically on a Thursday in mid October.
The next meeting of the Society, the 2019 ATM, will be held on the Sutton Bonington Campus of Nottingham University on October 10th. Sutton Bonington is in the middle of the Derby - Nottingham - Loughborough triangle, close to East Midlands airport.
Most of the papers presented to the Society at the meetings held over the last 25 years are available from the Secretary on CD. In addition, some of the more recent ones are available in the library on this website.
Each year, the Society selects the best paper of the year for the Mike Bennett Award. The selection process follows strict guidelines for allocating points.
