Conference organising chair Emeritus Professor Peter Dux advises that the large number of technical papers submitted gave the organising committee a di cult job and to ensure that all the valuable papers were provided to the delegates at the conference, a new form of electronic presentation method for poster papers was adopted. Dr Vinh Dao, chair of the technical committee, said: " is conference o ers an enormous number of technical papers, when one considers those presented in the technical sessions and the large number of accepted poster papers. It was too di cult to reduce the overall number and this is the reason we have adopted a new technique to enable delegates to review presentations of all poster papers. is will allow registrants to access the presentations for all poster papers while at the conference and with these in addition to the over 100 presented papers, the conference o ers an enormous range of technical information to registrants."
