Conference Programme

The provisional conference programme is now live. Delegates should carefully check that their name and affiliation and the title(s) of their contribution(s) are correct. Please e-mail any errors or omissions to AC2017@rgs.org as soon as possible. Some content is still subject to change, though schedule (day and time) changes will now only be made in exceptional circumstances. The printed programme book will be finalised in early July. Any changes which occur after this time will be reflected in the online programme.

All those listed on the conference programme planning to attend the conference should register as soon as possible please.
