The next FIBIS residential conference celebrates the society’s 20th birthday and will run from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th September at the Hawkwell House Hotel in Iffley, Oxford. A variety of experienced and engaging speakers are lined up to share their research, stories and specialist knowledge on a range of topics which should assist to fill in some gaps and encourage delegates to pursue their own investigations.
