Audio recordings of papers (which will not include the following Q&A session) will be posted online one week after the conference in a secure area so that speakers, delegates and virtual delegates will have the opportunity to listen to all the papers, even those in parallel sessions.


Access to the secure online area will be made available by use of a password, which will be emailed to all speakers and delegates who attend the conference. Those not able to attend the conference or attending only part of the conference, who wish to access the audio recordings should register as a Virtual Delegate (cost to be confirmed).

Virtual Delegate registration

Provides access to the audio recordings and supporting materials as an alternative to attending the conference in person in whole or in part. Virtual delegates can use the conference booking system to register, will have their name and affiliation added to the conference delegate list (if desired), and will receive a password by email as soon as the talks are all uploaded to the secure page after the conference.


Audio recordings will be lightly edited for ease of listening and several examples appear in our Resources area. A typical example, is:
