Sadly Matt has mailed to say that he needs to postpone his talk due to a sudden and serious illness of a family member. Our thoughts are with Matt at this time.

We shall continue with a social evening at Film Oxford which will give us time to talk and network, then an early evening at the pub! See you at Catherine Street.

Matt will reschedule his talk for some time in the new year.
