All speakers are asked to be mindful that the conference is a multidisciplinary event with a central theme of public engagement with science. You will be presenting to peers outside your research discipline and field so it will be important that you address your presentation appropriately for this audience.

Presenters should talk for a maximum of 15 minutes. This will be followed by approximately ten minutes of questions and discussion giving a total time of 25 minutes. In order to allow delegates to move freely between sessions, the chairs will allow 5 minutes between presentations for speakers to change over and audience members to settle.

A PDF file with all the sessions listed is also available along with a collected version of the abstracts.
