Important pre–conference information regarding UCL Zoom account

In order to access the sessions that will be hosted via zoom please set up your UCL Zoom account prior to the 14th July (if you have not already done so previously). If your UCL zoom account is not set up you will be unable to access the event because it will not be available via the non UCL zoom route.

We look forward to you joining us.
