Elizabeth Casson Lecture

Lastly but by no means least, if you are at conference make sure you get a seat to hear Prof Diane Cox deliver the Elizabeth Casson Lecture. She is one incredibly inspiring lady, that I have had the pleasure of hearing talk about research whilst at university.

She is a brilliant speaker and you would me silly to miss her if you are at #COT2017
