Going Green/Abstracts
Abstracts are available to download on line at the BABCP website there will be no printed versions. To further protect the planet please return your badge at the end of the conference to the registration desk or one of the stewards so that these can be recycled for a future event.


Room Capacity
Delegates must respect the limits on the numbers of people who can be accommodated in the lecture theatres and symposia rooms. These limits are there for health and safety reasons. Conference organisers will have to restrict access to rooms when their capacity has been reached. BABCP cannot therefore guarantee that space will be available for all delegates who wish to attend each session, so it is recommended that you arrive early or on time for the sessions that you particularly wish to attend.


Entry and Exit
To avoid disruption to presenters and other delegates, you may only enter and exit the lecture room at appropriate times (i.e. between presentations). You may therefore have to wait, either outside or inside the room and please follow the instructions of the session chair and/or conference stewards. Please turn off mobile phones.


Please do not leave valuables in the lecture and seminar rooms during the refreshment and lunch breaks unless arrangements are made to secure the room.


Eating and Drinking
Coffee and tea are provided free of charge to all delegates in the morning and afternoon at the times indicated in the programme. There will be various serving points where the scientific programme is taking place Lunch is included in your registration fee and will be available 12.30-14.00.
No evening catering has been organized but there are many excellent restaurants available for delegates in the city. For more information on Manchester as a destination please log onto
