Draft Programme published and updates

Dear all, the draft version of the programme (minor changes expected) is available now. You can view it here:


Posters: if you are presenting a poster: please bring a poster that is in portrait format (no landscape) and max. size A1.

Presentations: all sessions are 90 minutes long. Some sessions have three presenters, some have four. If you are in a session with three, you will have approx. 25-30 minutes, including presentation and questions. If you are allocated to a session with four presenters, you will have approx. 20 minutes, including questions. Please check the final programme once available, as the number of presenters in your session might still change.

Publication plans: we are behind with the evaluation of the draft papers received from you in the previous weeks. We expect to make the selection closer to the date of the conference (immediately before or after), hence the full papers (from those selected) will be expected after the conference. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Food at the conference: we are proud to announce that all food served at the conference venue (Technocentre) will be organic, and that the food served during the social event (The Hub) will be local and provided by local farmers.
