A summary of the
Exeter Conference - 2010
April 9-11 2010
2010's conference was a great success - not least because the sun actually shone for us! Thanks to all who helped make it so successful and thanks especially to all those overseas delegates who braved the risks of a rail strike to come.
If you didn't come this year why not
try and make it to next year's meeting?
To whet your appetite here are some images from the meeting; thanks to Mike Isaacs, Chris Lusby-Taylor and John Davis for these.

Where we were this year.
Here's a reminder of where we were, what we heard about and the excellent facilities that Exeter University offered us:
Here are some images of the University facilities. Top to bottom and left to right, we see two external views of Holland Hall, inside a bedroom, the approach to our block of rooms, room fridge (unstocked!) and safe, two shots taken inside the dining hall, the self serving area, the lecture theatre, the lectern and the 20ins deep modular tables that were used for exhibits.

Worried about the weather after the terrible January? Well, there's hope yet!! The warmest moment in the UK came in Exeter (no less!) on January 16th, when the mercury reached 12.4˚C (54.3˚F). How about that? Let's hope that April will also be above average..
