A buffet dinner will be provided for delegates this evening in the Arts Centre at 18:30 during the second poster session and exhibition. Presenting authors are reminded to be beside their poster during the designated sessions (17:30-18:30) or to find a co-author to replace them. The following late posters can all be found in Section 8: MS04 – P17; MS08 – P1; MS10 – P29 & P31-P33; MS11 – P02; MS20 – P16; MS20 – P19.

If you wish to share a taxi to the airport or station at the end of the conference, there will be a sign-up sheet available in the Rootes Building reception between 08:00 and 18:00 today and tomorrow.

There is an opportunity for ECA Individual Members to meet informally with their elected representatives on the ECA Council today, 12:00-13:00 in room 020 of the Social Sciences Building. It will be possible to discuss any matters of interest, and provide input to the Council meetings. There is no fixed agenda. Others are welcome to come also, and find out about the benefits of being an Individual Member, so please encourage your friends and colleagues to join in.

A major exhibition is running throughout ECM28 to celebrate the lives of W.H. and W.L. Bragg: for the first time it is possible to view historic equipment, notebooks, honours, letters, films and artwork. The exhibition is open from 09:00 – 20:00 every day in the Helen Martin Studio in the Arts Centre Building.

Please note that due to travel problems, talk MS12-04 has been cancelled, and therefore presentation MS12-05 by Michael Hough will take place at 11:20, earlier than originally scheduled.
