The 16th Scottish Indexes Conference is scheduled 12 March 2022. Keep an eye on www.scottishindexes.com for further details.
If this is your first conference, let me tell you a bit about the day. We start at 7 am UK time. The first session runs to just before 3 pm UK time and we show all of the presentations during that session.
The second session starts at 3 pm UK time and runs until about 11 pm UK time. During the second session, all of the presentations will be shown again. If you are joining us from the east coast of America this second session will start at 10 am in your timezone.
You can come and go throughout the day according to your own circumstances. Nearer the time we will publish a schedule for the day on our website: www.scottishindexes.com
