    This sounds like a great event! Will the individuals speaking at the conference publish a book which will include each speaker's essay on Christie's work?

    The individuals are required to publish their word as part of their PhD, but because of the speciality of their subject it is managed via the University. Some of the presenters are happy to email out their presentations other are not; the not's feel that someone might use their ideas! I made quite a few notes on a number of the presentations, but the ideas are quite unusual.
