The programme will consist of presentations by the following distinguished speakers:

The final details are still being arranged, but the attendance fee is likely to be c. 40 for the whole day, including the full
symposium documentation package; lunch, coffee/tea, and other refreshments; and the Reception at the end of the Symposium. There
will be a discounted fee for unwaged students, on production of evidence of their student status.

first come, first served basis. Please email Iztok Kosem (kosemi at aston.ac.uk) now, and he will send you more information about
