We welcome practitioner papers and reports, case studies and academic research papers. We are speaking to publishers about a book to be launched in 2022 to mark 20 years of this conference. We are also discussing the possibility of a special issue of a journal drawing on papers from this conference.
Abstracts should be emailed to Professor Don Webber (email@example.com). Due to popular demand, we are extending the deadline for submission to Friday 2nd April 2021.
Early Bird rates to include the conference dinner are £220 before 21st May 2021. (After this date, the fee will be £250). For PhD students, the fee is £180.
Note: we will do all we can to enable people to come together at this conference, especially as we recognise the need for people to develop their careers and reconnect. However, if the government advice relating to the Covid-19 pandemic suggests that we should switch to an online conference then we reserve the right to do so at a substantially reduced conference fee in the region of £25.
