Can I attend only one paper within a session?

We strongly discourage you from doing this because:

  1. we’ve grouped papers into sessions in a coherent way;
  2. it is up the session Chair to determin the order of papers in multi-paper sessions;
  3. it is impossible accurately to predict start and finish times of papers in multi-paper sessions;
  4. people leaving and joining sessions mid-way through can be disruptive to delegates and presenters alike.

When does altc2013 start/finish?

altc2013 will run from the morning of Tuesday 10th to the afternoon of Thursday 12th September 2013.

I only want to book for one/two day(s) and want to know when someone is speaking

Please note that sometimes speakers, even keynotes, have to change times as a result of other circumstances and so we cannot guarantee that you will get to hear a specific speaker – the only way to be sure is to attend the entire conference.

Should I sign up to sessions?

We encourage you to do so as this gives a sense of who will be coming and enable people to find each other in and after sessions.
