New comers welcome

An informal gathering hosted by the FACE Executive to welcome first time conference delegates, give them the ‘inside track’ on the conference and ensure that they make the most of the academic sessions and networking opportunities.


The informal reception is an opportunity to renew old acquaintances and make new ones in a relaxed informal setting. Details of the reception are still being finalised and will be published in due course.

Book launch

The peer reviewed annual publication will be launched at the conference and advance copies will be available for purchase at a preferential price. The edited publication contains a selection of papers based on presentations at the previous year’s conference.

Annual dinner

The annual dinner is the highlight of the conference and provides another opportunity for delegates to network and discuss the day’s events over dinner. The annual dinner is also an opportunity to reflect on the work of FACE and the contribution it makes to the community. As in previous years the host institution will nominate a charity to be supported by the conference.
