The conference will be split over two sessions on consecutive days, including talks, networking, and a professionally-facilitated gameplay session by the Centre for Systems Solutions. Each session will take approximately 3 hours, with time set aside for breaks.

We have invited speakers on a variety of topics, but abstract submission is open for additional speakers until 24th August. Please contact us via email to discuss or submit an abstract!
