Exhibition Area
The Exhibition Area will be located in the Level 2 and Level 3 Foyers of the Technology and Innovation Centre. It will be open from the opening reception on Tuesday 17th to Friday 20th July. Make sure you visit this area and browse through (and purchase) the latest titles from a number of publishers who will be present. There will also be details of the activities of BABCP regional Branches and special interest groups.

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. The University of Strathclyde is ideally situated for exploring the city, with the venue right next to the City Centre and Merchant City areas.

Here you will discover all things to do in Glasgow - from events and attractions to fine dining and a great night out.

Audio and Video Recording
All delegates are asked to request permission from the presenter(s) to audio or video-record a session. If anyone is found recording without permission they will be asked to leave the session. All recordings are for private purposes only.

Wifi is available in University Place for all delegates. Wifi codes will be provided at registration

Do not forget to wear your badge
You must wear your badge at all times during the Conference. A strict admissions policy will be operating and admission to symposia and other events will be restricted to badge holders only. You will also need your badge to collect your lunch and for the social events.
If you lose your badge a replacement fee of £25 will be made along with proof of registration. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but trust that delegates will understand the need to restrict entry to bona fide delegates only.

No Smoking Policy
In line with laws on smoking, no smoking is allowed in any enclosed public areas of the Conference.
