NAWGFest 2016: Timetable

Here is the full festival timetable. You can also download a copy as a PDF file.

Please note that there have been some changes since the original timetable was published. In particular, the mid-session coffee/tea breaks have been moved towards the end of each workshop. This was unavoidable, due to some last-minute room alterations by the University of Warwick.
