Thank you to all of you for casting your votes to decide the host of the 2013 RGS-IBG Mid-term conference. The final count put Birmingham ahead by just 16 votes, nevertheless giving us a clear winner. We would like to say a big thank you to both institutes for putting forward their time, resources, and for their enthusiasm. More details will be posted here later in the year by the organising committee. See you next year in Birmingham!
