Symplectic European User Conference 2019
University of Liverpool
2nd & 3rd July 2019
We are delighted to present our 2019 European User Conference, taking place at University of Liverpool, on July 2nd and 3rd, 2019. This is an annual gathering of members of Symplectic’s user community, with showcases of new and developing product features, interactive workshops, and opportunities to influence product development by giving feedback. Our event is open to institutions currently using or implementing Elements, as well as institutions wishing to learn more about our products and services.
In an effort to ensure our event meets your needs, we have decided to leave the last two sessions open. They will be confirmed after feedback from you and your peers! Your input will be needed in particular for the ‘unconference’ sessions which we will be running again this year. These form your opportunity to help shape the content of the conference and ensure its relevance to both you and others. Please see this page for more details.
The venue this year will be Foresight Centre, part of the University of Liverpool
