Reception - Sunday, July 22nd, 4:30-7:00 PM

Networking Event - Tuesday, July 24th, 12:50-1:50 PM

This lunchtime networking event will allow you to connect with the wider ICCS community. During the session, you will meet and greet peers far from your usual network and get to know more about each other through informal conversation. Sit down at a table, pick a question card, and let the others know more about your research and your interests. The session coordinator will propose several breaks allowing you to switch tables and mix with a wider profile of conference attendees. Time to make ICCS a smaller world! Register here.

"Unconference" - Wednesday, July 25th, 12:30-1:50 PM

Turning the conference on its head! Stepping out of the conventional conference model, the Unconference session will create space for self-organised, peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity over lunch! All conference participants will be able to propose "hosting" a session on a topic they’re interested in. Other participants will be invited to vote for the session that inspire them most. The top sessions will then be granted space to allow for open, interactive discussions and lively debates confronting diverse perspectives! Register here.
