Please note: While clicking 'Attending' will help us to guage interest and numbers, you still need to register via the conference website. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there.


The call for papers is now closed. Thank you very much to all who have submitted - the standard is very high, which is great for the conference but hard work for those making the selections! Applicants will be informed in mid August and we should have a draft schedule not too long after.
