We are delighted to announce that the provisional programme for this year’s Annual International Conference is now live.

Explore the fantastic range of keynotes, paper sessions, panels, workshops and more that will be happening at the conference in our online programme. Use the ‘schedule‘ tab to browse and search for session information, and use the ‘presentations‘ tab and search functionality to check the details of your own paper.

With over 400 sessions, it's a busy and packed programme. With so much going on, it can be easy to miss out on fantastic content, which is why we are excited that session organisers and presenters can upload additional content to their presentations in the online programme this year. This can be used to share your research with colleagues who are not able to join your session in real time, and keep the conversation going beyond the session itself.

Registration for the conference is open, with options for both in-person and virtual-only rates. The early bird discount is available until Friday 16 June.

For those attending the conference in person, we have published guidance to help you plan in advance, including booking your accommodation and travel and arranging a letter of invitation for visa applications. Please note that we are now at capacity for the conference creche, but you can ask to be added to the waiting list. Guidance about accessibility at the conference is also available.
