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.

MIST Council are planning to hold Autumn MIST 2021 on Thursday 25th - Friday 26th November 2021.
Due to the ongoing Covid situation, Interact 2021 will now be held as an online event. Entitled V- Interact, this free one day online symposium will take place on Tuesday 14 September 2021 as a series of themed workshops. Commencing with an opening plenary, we will then focus on two core topics: running and evaluating online engagement and supporting an equitable Covid recovery. Above all, it is a chance to share your online experiences and take part in discussions which will help shape engagement work going forward.
The event will also help shape our programme for Interact 2022, which will go ahead in person on 13–14 September 2022, hosted by Cardiff University.
V- Interact offers something for everyone wanting to hear from others and discuss how the pandemic has affected their engagement activities, it will provide a great opportunity to learn how people have adapted their engagement for online delivery, explore how this was evaluated, and provide a chance to share your experience and good practice.
Objectives for V-Interact can be viewed here, alongside evaluations of previous meetings. We will publish a draft programme in the summer and if you would like to receive more details, then please register here.
