Interested students are requested to email email@example.com before 4 May to register. After 4 May, they will be sent an email requesting them to set up a profile on Trello, the platform through which the workshop will be organised. On Trello, they will find more information on speakers/sessions, a space to introduce themselves to other delegates with a small bio, and a space to ask any questions about the sessions they wish to attend. It is hoped session recordings will be made available on Trello for a short time after the workshop, too.
