Programme (with timings and rooms)




Please let Chris Bowman know if you are coming to the meeting.

There will be time for informal discussions during the conference.

The meeting is supported by an LMS Scheme 3 grant. This is used to help offset travel costs for those from institutions participating in the scheme, with priority given to speakers and postgraduates. Please note that, if travelling by train, then you should purchase an advance ticket where possible, since the grant will not cover standard open return tickets to London during peak hours.
