#Ecsite2018 keynotes_James Beacham & the Enders sisters

James Beacham and the Enders sisters will be delivering this year's keynote speeches.

James Beacham is a particle physicist with the ATLAS group at The Ohio State University, based full-time at CERN. He regularly takes part in public events and lectures and is involved in a physics and music art-science project (all his outreach projects here).

James Beacham's speech will take place on Friday 8 June at 10.30, in the Room 1 at the CICG. In the session slot soon after you'll be able to engage in a conversation with the speaker.

Giulia Enders is the author and Jill Enders the illustrator of the internationally acclaimed book Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body's Most Underrated Organ. Giulia is enrolled in a PhD programme in gastroenterology at Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. She won a Science Slam competition with her talk on guts, which then led to the book, illustrated by her sister. In line with this year’s “Creative Collisions” theme, the two sisters will be sharing the stage and their talk will include a reflection on their own interdisciplinary collaboration.

The speech by the Enders sisters will take place on Saturday 9 June at 10.30, in the Room 1 at the CICG.
