The grid below gives the expected timing of the major elements of the ii17 conference, day by day. There may be some minor changes downstream (in which case the website will be updated to reflect them), but essentially this is what you can expect on arrival in Dundee. Due to the large number of Abstracts received, parallel talk sessions will be organised on the Tuesday and Thursday. These will be held in close proximity, so people can easily move between the two lecture theatres without missing the start of a talk. Synchrony between the two sessions will of course be vital, so Chairs will be fastidious in keeping to time. Speakers should please note that they will have exactly 12 minutes for their talks and any questions.

Other points to note:

  1. As previously announced, the conference will kick off with an Icebreaker Reception, starting at 18:00 on Sunday 9th. Free food and drinks; come along to meet old friends and legendary people in our field, including the keynote speakers.
  1. Please get to the conference venue early on the Monday to register and collect your conference bag. You will subsequently need your badge to gain admittance to conference events.
  1. Poster boards will be available for presenters to use from no later than Tuesday morning. Please note that the main poster session is 17:30-19:30 on Tuesday, but that Thursday lunchtime will offer a second chance for people to talk to poster presenters. Posters may be taken down after this.
  1. No plenary sessions will occur on the Wednesday. Excursions will be arranged to allow people to get out and about on that day (news on that will follow soon), but Wednesday can also be used for side-sessions and small meetings. The Wednesday evening dinner and ceilidh at Glamis Castle will be spectacular and is not to be missed. Tickets for this event are limited, are selling fast, and should be booked and paid for when you register for the conference through the website.
  2. The conference will formally close at 12:30 on Friday, but lunch will be provided for those who wish to have it.
