Pint of Science is the Glastonbury of science: a giant science festival that will take place simultaneously in over 60 pubs across the UK from 18-20 May. Leading experts in various scientific fields will present, discuss and take questions on their latest discoveries and research with members of the public, over a beer and a packet of pork scratchings.

This is the first year that Pint of Science will run in Birmingham and it is set to be a great success. You will be able to connect with scientists and chat to them about their research into mind reading machines, tracking viral outbreaks using mobile phones, the (in)security of Facebook and discover what children and orangutans have in common.

Dani Arribas-Bel and Emmanouil Tranos (School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences) will each be giving a talk on ‘Big Data and Cities’ on Tuesday 19 May from 7pm in Island Bar, Suffolk Street Queensway.
