The conference committee is working on the details of the conference programme. As a general rule, the keynotes will be scheduled at the beginning or the end of each day, book-ending a stimulating array of presentations, panels, and roundtables. We will post complete programme details as soon as we can, which means after all the proof-reading, editing, and organising of more than 100 individual presentations into sessions, themes and streams. So far, we can confirm the following:

Guidelines for Presenters:
Sessions will be 90 minutes long, including question time, with three presenters in each.
Individual presenters should prepare to speak for no more than 20 minutes each. Each presentation will be followed by questions.
Roundtable and panel sessions may vary from this standard format.
All sessions will be chaired, and the time kept.
