General information:

All participants will be subscribed to our conference email list prior to the meeting. Please accept this subscription, as we will circulate login information and daily announcements via this list.

Notices regarding the meeting will be sent after the closure of registrations.

Last year, we received a small number of applications with invalid emails. If you have previously registered, but have not been contacted by the end of Friday 7 July 2023, please get in touch with us at (yes, it has a previous year’s date).

Contributed Talks:

We will endeavour to include some contributed submissions for live talks from junior participants (PhD students, PDRAs) in the main conference programme.

If you are interested to be considered for a talk, please prepare an abstract and a one-page presentation to be submitted with the registration form by 16 June at the latest. Please include a summary / viewgraph of the main results of the research that you would like to present.

We will evaluate submissions on 19 June 2023, so later submissions will not be considered.

To facilitate our access to the presentation, please upload your file in PDF format to a website or file-sharing service of your choice, and share the link with us in the registration form.
