The symposium is free to attend and everyone is welcome. In order to keep the event inclusive, there will be no registration fee.

We are planning to keep the number of delegates low to encourage an intimate exchange of views and knowledge that will hopefully result in future collaborations. Whether you are planning to come for both or one of the days, we would ask you to register so that we can keep track of the numbers. Please select from the options in the link below.

The registration will close on Monday 27th August.
