Dear friends and colleagues.

Our delightfully whimsical (yet intellectually probing and socially uplifting) conference now has a full programme available, including room listings and times. To access a fully searchable version (you can also find abstracts of papers) that is completely up to date, visit

If you are old school, a pdf version can be found at

We also have a conference page on Facebook, where you can see the programme. We will also be streaming video and providing real-time updates during the conference.  Our doctoral students will be accosting you with camera phones during the conference and asking you to contribute your own two cents to the web page. Be prepared with witty observations and soundbites!

We refuse to have Donald Trump troll our esteemed guests, so we have decided not to use Twitter (although it is obvious he would benefit from the conference. Who knows, there is still time to register).
