We're experimenting with live broadcasts of our talks. The live broadcasts would be available (subject to consenting speakers) on our Youtube channel and the links would be posted on our twitter feed and also next to the talks as they become available.

For the audience listening to webcasts, if you have questions to ask/feedback, just email sidjaggi@gmail.com or tweet it to @EIIWorkshop. Be sure to include the hashtag identifying the last name of the speaker in your tweets! (e.g. #yeung if you have a question directed to Prof Raymond Yeung)
