The tides of March

Associate Editors for Conference reports Kate Cavanagh and Paul Redford introduce our coverage of the 2003 Annual Conference.
From 13 to 15 March, the Bournemouth International Centre was home to 625 delegates at this year’s Annual Conference. The main themes were genes, groups and memory, but as usual there was something for everyone – we hope that this diversity is reflected in the reports this month and next. There were more Society award and memorial lectures than ever, and in the coming months many of these will appear as full articles in The Psychologist. We hope this month’s reports give you a flavour of how the conference serves as a showcase of the science: from football referees to ingroup favouritism, from suicide to volunteering, from drug use to conspiracy theories.
