Previous conferences (and seminars)

For details of our previous conferences (along with the occasional seminar) please click on the titles below. This will allow you to view the conference programme, abstracts and (where available) audio and video recordings. Please note that wherever possible we provide alt text to ensure that images used in abstracts and PowerPoint presentations are accessible to those using screen reading software. However, because the responsibility for providing alt text rests with the authors of presentations and abstracts we cannot always guarantee full accessibility.
