The event

On Members’ Day, we explicitly invite members of HELTA to take the stage even (or especially!) if they are not regular presenters. We have received proposals on a wide variety of topics: On top of the seven talks by HELTA members, we have a plenary talk by Tim Phillips. This will be an unmissable full-day event with a pot-luck lunch and a charity raffle!

Please find here our programme for the day:

HELTA Members Day Programme

This event is free for members of HELTA and other ELTAs. Non-members pay 10 EUR (refundable upon joining HELTA). This admission fee covers our pot-luck lunch.

Please let us know what you would like to contribute to the pot-luck when you register for the event. Our favourite members bring their own cups, plates and cutlery and so help us to keep waste from disposable cups and dishes to an absolute minimum! Thank you!

Please feel free to share this event and with your colleagues and don’t forget to register at  or by clicking the REGISTER button at the top. There will be coffee and tea provided. Our favourite members bring their own mugs so that we can save waste!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

This is our schedule for the day. Please download the PDF of the programme if you would like to read about the talks in detail!
