What is a Satellite Event?

Satellite Events are additions to the core Conference. The Satellite sessions are workshop or lecture style. Content need not be as academic or at all. Note that for Satellite sessions where the proposer-organiser has chosen an AAATE Congress supported publication, this will be online and open access.  

The Satellite sessions will be held at St Mary’s Conference Centre, Sheffield on 11th and 12th September (2017) – please note these dates are provisional. The venue is located approximately a 20 minute walk from the Conference venue of The Diamond.

There will be daily registration fee of £176 (early registration available until 1st July 2017).
