Welcome to day 1

Welcome to the first day of ALT’s Annual Conference

Here is some information to help you get started:

  1. Read the Welcome from the Co-Chairs
  2. Have a look at the Guidance for Delegates
  3. Create your own personal conference schedule
  4. Get networking with our conference game

With a full day ahead make sure you get registered before Josie Fraser’s opening keynote “In the Valley of the Trolls” (you can read more about Josie’s and all the other keynotes at https://altc.alt.ac.uk/2016/programme/keynotes/ ) . The programme will then run in parallel sessions until the afternoon keynote by Lia Commissar at 16.45 when we will all come together in plenary again. In the evening drinks in the Fusion Bar (cash bar) are followed by dinner in the Rootes Restaurant for residential participants (note that drinks are in the Fusion Bar NOT in the Exhibition Area).

Help is at hand via the Conference Helpdesk, located in the Exhibition Area, and staff and conference helpers will be on hand at the start of each session.

We hope you have a good first day #altc and if you miss any of the action on day on, you can follow along or watch some of the key moments online.
