Extended Deadline – 2 March 2015

We have received a diverse range of proposals that all really embrace the themes of our conference and this is shaping up to be truly international.

We have been contacted a number of people asking for a little more time to submit and we are happy to extend the deadline for proposals until 2 March to allow everyone the chance to participate.
