Scottish Indexes Conference XIV
We schedule our day so that it is timezone friendly. It means you can join from Sydney, Australia or Michigan, USA and still interact with our speakers. We start at 7 am UK time and keep going until 11 pm UK time. Some people come and go through the day, others watch all day; it’s entirely up to you.
