The DSA2019 conference is on! A few important reminders and notices for all those attending:
- Remember to bring your re-usable water bottle to the conference
To avoid the use of single use plastics, we will not be providing small water bottles at the conference. There will be large water dispensers around the venue for you to top up your re-usable water bottles.
- Please pay your conference and membership fees before arrival to avoid queues on arrival
You will not be able to attend sessions until your fees are settled so pay ahead of time and avoid queueing and payment hassles at the door.
Video-recording at the Berrill Theatre and conference photographer
Please be aware that since Robtel Neajai Pailey’s and Sheela Patel’s Keynote Plenaries and the ECR Plenary Panel are being live-streamed and there will be video cameras filming during these events in the Berrill Theatre. While the cameras are mainly pointed towards the presenters, they will record some shots of the audience, especially during the Q&A. If you do not wish to be filmed, please attend these events remotely at the Hub Theatre, where you can watch the presentations through the live video-link. You’ll also be able to participate in the Q&A at the Hub Theatre – there will be an audio connection between the rooms. In addition to the video cameras, there will also be a photographer documenting the conference. If you do not wish to be photographed, we encourage you to approach the photographer and let her know. Or you can contact the conference admin team either in the NomadIT office in the Berrill Building or by emailing to conference(at)devstud.org.uk.
If you cannot attend the conference, you can access the free live-stream footage via The Open University website on the days of the plenaries.
Panel and daily timetables are online, see here to find out when your panel will take place.
Travel and accommodation pages are online to assist you with your bookings to attend the conference.
