We are delighted to announce that the Provisional Conference Programme can now be viewed/downloaded, and that Conference Registration is now open (deadline 20 August 2014). All information can be viewed here
In the last few days, a couple of queries have been sent to our conference email address regarding whether or not a given abstract was received by us. We have sent confirmation responses to all proposals that we have received; so, if you did not receive an email from us after your submission, we ask that you contact us immediately. On a related note, it has happened in the past that proposals sent from Yahoo email accounts have ended up in our spam folder (which we check regularly as a result).
With thanks, and apologies for any inconvenience,
The Organising Committee
