Dear colleagues

I am delighted to invite you to our 29th Annual International Conference, which in 2019 will be in the dynamic city of Belfast.

The NOTA Annual Conference attracts speakers and delegates from around the world, consistently drawing praise for the quality of the presentations, the warm and positive atmosphere of the event and above all the quality and usefulness of the learning that delegates take away and back into their work. There will be a range of keynotes, symposia, workshops, research presentations and interactive poster sessions along with unprecedented networking opportunities.

Call for papers will be open on the 18th October. This coming year we are planning to offer many more slots for you to present aspects of your work in shorter parallel sessions with similar themed presenters. In recognition of the hard work that goes into preparation we will also be offering all presenters a discount on their Conference attendance.
Keynote speakers will be announced in due course and we very much hope that you will submit a proposal for a breakout – an opportunity to share your work with your professional community

We are delighted to be hosting our conference in the heart of Belfast, at a venue that is right in the city centre but with unrivalled access to rail and air links.

We very much look forward to welcoming you in Belfast.

Gail McGregor

Chair, NOTA Conference Committee
