How to book: Maltby: Register in advance for this webinar: 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom session. We are using ‘Zoom Webinar’ format for the lecture, so you won’t be visible or audible, you’ll just be 'in the audience'. You will be able to submit questions during the presentation, using the Q&A button on the Zoom screen. 
Following the presentation there will be a Q&A session, when those questions will be addressed and further questions can be asked. We intend to make anyone asking a question visible and audible at that time, so please let us know if prefer to remain invisible and inaudible no matter what. 

We hope to record the lecture and make it available for one month afterwards.
