The programme will be found below from mid-December 2017, including links to the abstract pages of the students' presentation, upon which you are invited to ask questions or make comments - these may be answered by the student on their page directly, or may be answered during their presentation itself.

Access to the conference sessions is limited to H818 participants, MA ODE students, alumni and staff, and IET staff. If you fall into one of these categories and would like to register for the conference, please complete the form that will appear here in January 2018. You may of course join us for a full session (or more) or just dip in to see the presentations that catch your eye - it is entirely up to you. (NB Current H818 students do not need to register).
