Arrangements for the Annual Meeting at the University of Southampton are progressing very well, with the latest details available here. Over 70 abstracts have now been submitted, but – given that this is a very busy period for many working in the academic sector - to allow everyone the opportunity to submit their work and participate in the conference we are offering a short extension to the abstract submission deadline. As such we are ready to accept further abstract submissions, with a final deadline of the 24th June. Please submit your abstract following the guidance on the conference web page.

The Southampton organising committee will be formulating the final programme shortly after this extended deadline, and we expect to notify colleagues of their accepted abstracts by mid July. At this time we will also be publishing the final programme. In the meantime we continue to encourage colleagues to register for the meeting and the Environmental Sensing Workshop through the conference web site, in order to secure your place at this meeting.

Many thanks
The organising committee
