The Organising Committee is excited to announce that every Panel and Session during the conference, during which our delegates will present, will be Live Streamed on YouTube or on Periscope. The Poster Session will be streamed via mobile on Periscope, including short Q&As with Poster delegates on their research.

This is an exciting opportunity for our delegates to demonstrate their research internationally and engage with the wider public. It is also a great opportunity for our international delegates’ colleagues to participate and engage with the conference in Liverpool Live online, as well as those otherwise unable to travel to Liverpool for the day.
