during the period of the conference.

Registration is open to all interested participants. Interested

for more details about the conference.

  1. Look at the different Email addresses used in the Email. Why would Ellen Butler’s Email be laraarnold12 ? Plus two further Emails, one to a generic “not a website” domain, the other to a public yahoo account. You would expect to see an address related to the event or at least one of the organisers.
