Committee Activities

The ALT Annual Conference is organised by a Committee of volunteers. Find out who’s involved.

Peer Review

A key focus of the Conference Committee is to conduct the peer review of all proposals submitted to the conference once the Call for Proposals has been closed. Guidance for Reviewers will be available soon and we also provide support at committee meetings.

Guest posts

Committee Members are invited to write guest posts for publication on the conference platform, sharing their perspective on the event, looking back at past years or sharing advice and guidance for new authors and participants. Please send your post to
