The start of the first PISCES E-conference is rapidly approaching, with our first presentation due on Monday 21 March. The presentations will run from 21-25 March with an extra week to allow for continued discussions to take place. This email aims to introduce you, as a signed up conference participant, to a number of practical details and arrangements.
The conference website can be accessed online at:
In order to access the site you will need to be signed into the HEDON website using your email address and password (http://www.hedon.info/login). If you have forgotten your password you can request a new one through the website. If you experience any difficulties, please email me (Miriam@hedon.info). I suggest you bookmark this page so you can return to it easily during the next weeks.
On the conference website you can change your email subscription options. For example if you do not want to receive notifications of posts by email make sure you click on the eye in the top right corner of the forum to remove the red cross and deactivate the watch. Or if you wish only to be notified of a specific discussion threads by email you can click on the smaller eye which appears at the top of each thread to place a red cross in this eye and remove the red cross from the eye in the main forum page.
A number of documents available only to conference participants will be placed on the conference website (http://www.hedon.info/PISCES+E-conference). This section will be updated regularly in the coming weeks and during the conference.
The documents will be available from Friday 18 March. We encourage you to take the opportunity to login to the website, and download these in preparation for the conference.
If you have any relevant documents that you feel would be of interest to other conference participants or would help us in our discussions, please either email them to me, or upload them yourself to the relevant documents section at the bottom of the conference webpage.
Invitation to others:
We currently have 53 signed up participants in the conference. If you know
