Attached is the course programme to date; please ensure that you are fully aware of the session times. Some of the multiheader sessions and both short courses and the long course (only available if booked prior to the conference and paid as an additional cost) will take place on the 11th May. Please note there will be no lunch provided on the 11th Mayas we are only holding the breakout sessions on that day.

It is really important that you are aware of the timings of the multiheader sessions, short courses, long course and self assessment session that you have booked.

If you are unsure refer to your booking confirmation form or drop us an email. Please note that if you miss your session timings you will not be able to attend a different session.
The main Symposium lectures start at 10am on Thursday, 12th May and at 9am on Friday, 13th May. There are exhibitor stalls from early morning. The multiheaders (additional, paid sessions) start at 7:50 am on each day (please refer to your original booking confirmation) and the self-assessment slide preview practical session (additional, paid session) starts at 8 amon the 12th May. Please come at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your session for registration.


If you are booked on any short courses, multiheader sessions or the long course on the 11th May, the registration will be out side the room where your session will take place. All the rooms are mentioned on the programme; please also find attached a map of the venue to help.

The registration for the main symposium will take place in the Crown Hall on the 12th and 13th May and will be open from 7:15 am in the morning. When you get to the venue on the 12th, please make your way to the registration desk in the Crown Hall where you will be registered and provided with a symposium bag and name badge with the additional sessions (multiheaders and self assessment) printed on the back of it. If you are attending any sessions on the 11th, you would have already been given the conference bag but you would still need to register. You must keep this name badge visible at all times during the conference.
