Welcome to the ALT Annual Conference 2014 networking site. This site is designed to help you make connections between people and knowledge as well as helping you engage in this year’s conference. It’s main purpose is to help you to:
- plan the sessions you want to attend either in person and, where available, as an online participant from the Programme;
- discover and connect with other participants with a searchable profile; and
- contribute to to the discussion either directly on this site or by tagging content with #altc which is collected in the Reader.
Many of the features on this site like the programme and streamed sessions are available without a login. For other features of this site you need register which is free!
