Interested in organising a seminar?

We're looking for new seminar material, both lecture and workshop based.

It is with regret we have had to postpone the following meeting, in light of the on going global COVID-19 situation. We will be in touch shortly with registered delegates and faculty on this meeting. We are reviewing the events calendar for suitability for pre-recording and delivery online. We will update the website with details as soon as we can.
