CIfA Annual Conference 2013 - Programme

The conference programme is set to include a number of discussion sessions, seminars and training workshops aimed to give delegates an interesting and diverse conference. The timetable for sessions will be finalised soon.

Training opportunities can be found in many of the sessions and tours, and we do have specific training workshops listed below which need to be pre-booked due to limited numbers.

The full programme can be downloaded here as a PDF, or go to the bottom of the page.

Remember, if you are coming to the conference, you will get a copy of the programme in your conference pack, along with other goodies!

Discussion sessions

These sessions are traditional paper sessions, with an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the paper or session. Papers tend to be around 20 minutes long, with five minutes for questions, and sessions are generally half day in length.

If you want to submit a paper for a session, the deadline is the 31st January 2013. You can find information on how to submit a paper in the session information, or you can email amanda.forster [at]

Training workshops
