LIYSF 2015 will explore the future developments in the sciences with leading scientists, dignitaries and industry pioneers give lectures throughout the event. The forum will cover all areas of science, but the theme this year will be based on “International Science” – considering the ever growing importance of working together across the world. Recent former speakers include Professor Lord Winston, Dame Carol Robinson, Professor Lesley Yellowlees, Professor Sir Roy Anderson, Lord Browne of Madingley, Professor Steve Cowley, Professor Trevor Jones CBE, Professor John Ellis (CERN) and Sir Colin Terry to name a few.

Founded in 1959, LIYSF aims to give a deeper insight into science and its applications for the benefit of all mankind; and to develop a greater understanding between young people of all nations. At a time when the sciences are of the utmost importance to all the nations around the world, the UK Prime Minister is endorsing the Forum to stimulate the attendance of young scientists the world over to come together to learn, exchange views, opinions and share knowledge at this exciting and dynamic event.
