The Society now invites proposals for panels and abstracts for individual presentations.

Panels can be made up of either three or six presentations that address a common topic. Panel proposals should contain a brief description of the topic (one to two sentences) and abstracts for the presentations.

Abstracts for both individual presentations and presentations within panels should be no longer than 250 words and include the name, affiliation and contact details of the presenter.

Please send panel proposals and presentation abstracts to no later than 1 March 2019. Notifications of acceptance will be made by 1 April 2019.

All presentations will be in standard conference format, with 20 minutes of speaking time and 10 minutes for questions. Panels may opt for a common 30-minute question and discussion time for groups of three presentations.

Details of registration will appear later on the conference webpage:

Come for the conference, stay for the lovely Edinburgh weather!
