This 7th annual event will be held online 15-17 Nov 2021 and will consist of a series of presentations, short talks, and discussions. Registration will open soon. For more information see the PCTU event page or contact 


Abstract submission:

If you would like to contribute to one of the sessions, please submit an abstract of max 300 words (plus title, authors, contact details and affiliation for presenting author) via the abstract submission page by the extended deadline of 11.59pm on 19 September 2021.

Abstracts can be submitted for either a regular presentation or a rapid-fire short-talk. Short-talks are up to 4 minutes with a maximum of 4 content slides long. These talks can be more wide-ranging and/or speculative in nature and don’t need to describe a completed piece of research; however, the topic needs to be described clearly.

Abstracts for a presentation or rapid-fire short talk may be submitted here
