International delegates requiring a visa to enter the UK are advised to submit their abstracts as early as possible to allow refereeing to take place and an official acceptance letter to be issued; this will give sufficient time then to obtain the necessary travel documents. N.B. Contributed papers, possibly elevated to orally presented Landmark papers, can only appear in the conference Proceedings Volume if one of the authors has registered for the conference.
