Once I’ve registered for the symposium is there anything else I need to sign-up for?

Yes.  As numbers are limited for some workshops and some require a small amount of preparation, once you’ve read the information on each workshop, please sign up for your two workshops by clicking the link here. If you change your mind, just click on the link again and make your adjustments. There’s no need to sign-up to any of the other elective sessions such as the discussion groups (Thursday afternoon) or subject showcase sessions (Friday morning).
