    If you are a technology supplier and want to present at the conference your presentation must include performance data rather than just claims. To encourage adoption of your technology an honest pros and cons assessment should be included; outlining where the technology is good and where it wouldn’t apply.

    The proceedings will be produced as an E-book shortly after the conference and all contributions made available for free download on our website 16 months after the event.
