Featured speakers and panellists include Anna Mauranen, Barbara Seidlhofer, Martin Dewey, Christopher Hall, Constant Leung, and Henry Widdowson.

Registration and refreshments (including lunch) are free of charge; however, we should stress that places are limited, so reserving your place early is advised. People attending the day's event are also invited to stay on for the inaugural lecture of Jennifer Jenkins, founder of CGE, from 6pm to 7pm. The lecture will be introduced by Henry Widdowson with Constant Leung responding, and will be followed by a drinks and canap├ęs reception.
