If you are presenting a poster or a talk then please upload them to the links provided.

For this year’s Autumn MIST, we will not be providing name badges and lanyards. Instead we would like for everyone to bring your favourite lanyard and name badges and reuse those. We would also like to have a lanyard amnesty where people can bring a spare lanyard for those who may have forgotten or do not have a lanyard. There will be a small number of stickers available on the day to make your own name tag if needed.
Code of Conduct
All attendees must follow the MIST/RAS Code of Conduct, which can be found here: https://www.mist.ac.uk/community/conduct-and-support. Details on reporting breaches of the code of conduct will be provided on the day. Thank you in advance for contributing to a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
We are aware that Autumn MIST welcomes a range of attendees, many of whom are new to the community and may be attending their first conference. We are trialling a MIST Buddies scheme this year that informally partners new members with their peers, with an emphasis on PhD students. The purpose of the partnerships is to give new community members a contact point for the day and someone that can give them a helping hand in networking and getting to know the community.
We would love to hear from you if you are (a) a new member that would like a partner or (b) willing to be a MIST Buddy.
To get involved please complete the following form by Tuesday 21 November: https://forms.gle/cv8mwRYK98wZnQuQ8.
Thank you in advance for helping make the community more welcoming and supportive.

We are pleased to announce that following Spring MIST 2023 the Rishbeth Prizes this year are awarded to Sophie Maguire (University of Birmingham) and Rachel Black (University of Exeter).
Sophie wins the prize for the best MIST student talk which was entitled “Large-scale plasma structures and scintillation in the high-latitude ionosphere”. Rachel wins the best MIST poster prize, for a poster entitled “Investigating different methods of chorus wave identification within the radiation belts”. Congratulations to both Sophie and Rachel!
As prize winners, Sophie and Rachel will be invited to write articles for Astronomy & Geophysics, which we look forward to reading.
