Wednesday at ECM28

On August 28, 2013, in News, by Richard Cooper

Wednesday is another action packed day at ECM28 with more great scientific sessions, historical presentations and films. The day concludes with the Gala Dinner and Ceilidh. The third poster session runs from 17:30 – 18:30 and presenting authors are reminded to be beside their poster during this session 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.

The Gala Dinner will be held this evening in the Panorama Suite of the Rootes Building at 19:30 for 20:00 start. Please don’t forget your dinner ticket as they will be required for entry.

The dinner is to be followed by a traditional Ceilidh dance featuring ThingumaJig Ceilidh Band; delegates are strongly encouraged to join in. No experience is required; each dance is organized in a circle, long set or square and the Ceilidh band caller will call instructions!
