Conference Programme:

A DRAFT conference programme has been prepared from the papers that were accepted by the Technical Committee. We had an excellent response from authors and the quality of the programme is strong.

Note that this is a DRAFT and is subject to change, right up to the last minute. Authors and delegates should not rely on particular papers being at a specific date and time without checking with the organiser first.
