Conference prices are being kept largely the same as in 2015 and there will again be free student registration (including lunches and refreshments) for students presenting a paper.

Outline proposals (250-500 words per paper plus brief c.v. or c.vs) should be submitted by 29 January 2016 to the conference secretary, Sue Scott-Martin,  and also the BACS President, Tony McCulloch.

As last year, paper proposals will normally be reviewed by the conference committee and answered within 48 hours in order to expedite conference planning and registration.
