Conference ends


The conference is for the exchange of ideas and information, and all those attending are invited to contribute. The Society is grateful to those who have offered papers. The programme is not rigid, and can be altered to suit speakers’ travel arrangements. Those offering papers are reminded that the aim is to stimulate discussion, that work in progress, rather than work completed, may be as interesting to the audience and more useful to the speaker, AND THAT THEY SHOULD RESTRICT THEMSELVES TO THE TIME ALLOTTED (15-20 minutes). Members are asked to wait until a speaker finishes before commenting or questioning.
