We would like to announce an extra FLaRN event on Friday 22 January 2016 which builds on the 2014 FLaRN conference in Swansea and leads up to the 7th FLaRN conference in Vilnius, Lithuania in June 2016.

The programme is now available.
We look forward to welcoming you in Swansea for this free workshop, but please fill in this short registration form for catering purposes. The workshop will take place in the James Callaghan lecture theatre at Swansea University’s Singleton campus. It is building number 4 on this map.
