August 2016

Dear friends 

In just over a year we will be coming together again in Bali for ICNT 17.  Preparations are well underway to make this a truly amazing event.  Now is the time to register, to submit abstracts, to start thinking about your travel plans. You can find all the details at the conference website: https://into-icnt.org

It has been a very active time for us all at INTO.  You can stay up to date by following Catherine's (almost) weekly blog.    New members, new volunteers, so much is being done by INTO members around the Globe.

On August 2nd we hosted our second Global Meetup, online.  For those who were not able to attend this online event we have posted a recording of it on YouTube and as our first ever Podcast.  The Podcast is now available for subscription on iTunes.

Best wishes and happy reading from the INTO team.
