MW Symposium Bordeaux – a guide


I thought it might be useful to publish a guide to our extensive coverage of the recent MW Symposium in Bordeaux. It comprised a succession of really meaty, interesting sessions with some useful insights.

Symposium organisers Fiona Morrison MW and Jacques Lurton, MW student, are pictured at the first night's get together when they began to realise they might have a success on their hands.
