Conference format

The Conference runs from 12:30 on Wednesday 10th April, until 17:00 on Friday 12th April. There will be two 1.5 hour sessions on Wednesday, four 1.5 hour sessions on Thursday and four 1.5 hour sessions on Friday. Presentations will be 15 to 20 minutes in length (timing to be decided by 1st April 2019) including up to 5 minutes for any questions.

The formal dinner will be held in Goldsmiths' Hall, a 15-20 minute walk from the University.

Recommendations for speakers

Somewhat in contrast to other conferences, UKACM2019 is strongly encouraging presenters to bring A4-sized transparencies (or even paper sheets) containing either their hand-written or printed presentation. These transparencies would be used in conjunction with an overhead projector. You may prefer to create a set of highly polished slides produced by Beamer, Prezi or some other software. That is your choice. Nevertheless, we are very keen to see hand-written presentations. If you wish to show a video (as part of your presentation) of a dynamic process, then that will be most welcome. While the use of hand-written transparencies might appear to some as unorthodox and retrogressive, it can offer a far more creative and visually engaging experience for the viewer. This is a technique widely adopted in some areas of theoretical physics (see Sir Roger Penrose) and the late great Mike Crisfield. Some presenters might wish to add details to the sheets during the presentation.  

If you are bringing your own laptop to run a short video, do please ensure that you have the necessary leads/converters/adapters and video software so that your machine will connect with the auditorium VGA socket and 240AC UK power outlet.
