Those whose abstracts are accepted will be allotted a 30 minute slot (of which up to 10 minutes can be reserved for questions). In the event that we receive a large number of high quality submissions, a poster session will held to accommodate further selected submitted material. Speakers giving talks will receive up to £100 to defray travel expenses. Additionally, a conference prize will be awarded for the best talk by an early career researcher (understood as including graduate students and those who completed their PhD in the last five years).
