We would also like you to consider your use of paper, and if you choose to take notes do so digitally - however we appreciate that this may not be always possible or preferred so there will be a small number of notebooks available, provided generously by one of our sponsors, Ordnance Survey.

We will be offering 10 scholarships for early career researchers (see criteria below). These will cover the registration fee. For those who would like to apply, please do so following the submission of your abstract using the link below.
