The SVS 2017 Scientific Advisory Panel and the SVS 2017 Conference Organizers reserve the right to alter any part of the published conference programme if this is necessitated by any circumstances outside their control. All efforts will be made to keep any such changes to a minimum. The programme published in the brochure was correct at the time of going to press.
If you and your colleagues are unable to attend the conference, the conference materials (abstract booklet, speaker handouts, late abstracts, attendee list, pack materials and literature) are available for purchase. While not intended as a substitute for actual attendance, these materials would at least provide a documentary record of the event and allow you to keep you or your organization’s library up to date. The cost of providing this non-attendee package is £395 (including postage and packing). To order this package from Meetings Management please use the relevant section in the Delegates Registration Form within the registration section.
