The upcoming conference, “Flexibility and contact geometry” now has its own dedicated webpage where you can find the finalised list of speakers and the outline of the schedule. It also contains information on **how to register**. Whilst registration is free, it is essential so that we know how large an audience to prepare for. Lunch will be provided free of charge to all registered attendees.
