Conference dates confirmed as Sunday 12th September to Friday 17th September 2021

Due to continuing uncertainties around international travel the conference will be offered in a “hybrid mode" (both in-person and virtual) with enhanced participation enabled for those only able to join remotely due to restrictions. These are described in greater detail on the registration page.

The highly interdisciplinary nature of this conference series means in-person registration is strongly encouraged for anyone able to safely travel to Birmingham, but we will also do our best to create as immersive a conference experience as possible for those unable to physically attend. 

The abstracts submission deadline has been extended to Monday 14 June.

For both in-person and virtual participation the discounted early-bird registration closes on 1 August. Standard registration will still be possible up to 8th September.
