Guidance for presenters:

All presenters will have a maximum of 15 minutes to present. Please ensure that you are able to stick to that time. The rooms will be equipped with a pc and project for powerpoint presentations or similar, so do feel free to use those. While it may be possible to connect your own device to the projector, there’s no guarantee this will work. Sessions tend to go more smoothly if presenters simply transfer files via a USB drive onto the desktop PC before the beginning of the session, so please come prepared to do so. It will be a Windows PC with MS Office available, so if you use different software, you might want to prepare a .pdf file instead or have your presentation available in some online format that you can point a web browser at.

Papers in advance:

If you would like to share a working paper related to your presentation or a set of PowerPoint slides or similar in advance, then please send these now to Submitted papers are available from a Dropbox folder linked from the online programme.


When you registered for the conference you were asked which meals you would like to attend. The Tuesday lunch will be a buffet, free to all delegates. For the other meals we require exact numbers and delegates need to pay. Details, including information on how to make pre-payments for food, have been circulated by email from – please do double check. If you have signed up for a meal but are no longer able to attend, please let the meal coordinator know by email as soon as possible. If you are unsure what you selected at registration, this information will be in a registration confirmation email sent from the Google Forms system with the subject line ‘AFPP Registration’.
