Sounds good. Do you know if there's going to be anyway for people who can't attend to find out what's going on in Brighton?

I am not going to be able to attend, but would also be interested in finding out more about what is going on in Brighton and Hove.

I've searched around a bit and found the web-site for Mindout (it is a clever name :)) which has a link to the Coference flier, pack and booking form. The website also publishes their research findings so I guess that any Conference outcomes will appear there if anywhere.

Anyway the link is....

This should probably be something we have a permanent note of somewhere but I am so rusty I have forgotten where right now! :redface:
