  • Posters will be presented over lunch, in colour A3, and on display throughout the conference
    We are also receiving requests for longer talks, up to 15 minutes. Whilst we cannot guarantee that we will be able to host your talk due to time constraints, we’ll do our best to fit you in.

An important note about cut-off dates:

  • The cut-off date to register to give a talk (in person and via recording) is October 7, 2022.
  • The cut-off date to submit presentation recordings and posters is October 10th, 2022.
  • Registrations for audience-only attendees will be open until October 10th, 2022. Please email us to register after this date; we’ll do our best to cater for you.
  • These cut-off dates allow the organising committee to finalise the agenda, presentation schedule and printing, as well as catering for the conference. Please advise ASAP if you are no longer attending, or no longer wish to present.

Honours students are most welcome to apply to attend too, although priority will be given to PhD and CIE staff (postdocs, permanent staff, etc) first.

Please note that our Thursday trivia is capped at 50 people – best in, best dressed! Prizes will be on offer, with full catering provided.
