Each afternoon there will also be the opportunity for Question and Answer sessions. We will be asking each attendee to give flash presentations and we will also be arranging some syndicates for project work. Don’t worry if  you cannot commit to eight consecutive tuesday afternoons, all of the lectures will be available to watch afterwards.

We still have a few places available so please bring this to the attention of your group colleagues, I am sure there will be few better ways to spend Tuesday afternoons over the course of the summer!

If you have an interest in being involved, then please drop me a note at
