  • Family friendly hours
  • Meet on-line - we are working with a professional virtual platform provider to create a dynamic virtual conference experience featuring: 
    • Networking with fellow delegates: one to one and in groups
    • "Super" posters: presenters can upload a short video and handouts - dedicated discussion times and opportunities to send queries to authors at any time
    • Pre-recorded or live presentations for oral presenters - you can choose
    • Catch up with recordings of keynotes or parallel sessions you may have missed and view posters at any time (for registered delegates only)
    • The platform is very user-friendly, lots of guidance will be provided and you will be able to familiarise yourself with it in the week before the conference 

We look forward to welcoming you.
