The conference will run from 17th - 19th September. The keynote speakers this year are Andy Stanford-Clark, Chief Technology Officer for IBM in UK and Ireland and Dr Ben Goldacre, best-selling author, broadcaster, campaigner, medical doctor and academic. As ever, there will be a varied talks and workshop programme split across multiple streams.

There will be a pre-conference drinks reception on Monday 16th September, and an informal buffet dinner in the Great Hall on Tuesday 17th. A formal conference dinner will be held on the evening of Wednesday 18th.
