Both are expected to include significant EM/CA contributions, submissions for each close soon so check the websites and book your flights!

Forum spam filter

Thanks to an influx of spam registrations on our modest forum I’ve installed another spam filter. Hopefully a more reliable one. So don’t be surprised if you’re asked questions if you try to login to the forum, they shouldn’t be that challenging (I hope). Also as part of this process I pruned all the fake registrations, however if someone has registered using non-institutional email (such as their gmail) and given an obscure username they *may* have been deleted. If this has happened to you email aiemca@aiemca.net and I’ll fix it up.

Also keep a lookout for the next installment in the IPRA diaries coming soon featuring Jack Bilmes to a youtube near you!
