This year WESLINE will be holding its annual conference jointly with COSEELIS on Monday 4th July at the British Library Conference Centre. COSEELIS has kindly agreed to handle registration and payments for WESLINE members. The registration form and invoice, together with the programme, are available on the COSEELIS website: https://coseelis.wordpress.com/

The conference will be followed by a wine reception (we hope) and optional conference dinner – buffet-style venue offering a mixture of Asian and Italian dishes.
