Oxford, UK.

Preface from the Conference Program Chair

The OBEC program continues to show a healthy mixture of high standards of selectivity coupled with wide participation from our academic community. All manuscript submitted for the conference went through a double-blind referee process.

Any ABER conference is only as good as the people who take time out of their very busy schedule to help put it all together. As Conference Program Chair, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Joy Grant of Manchester Metropolitan University, our local program coordinator and, Alice Pargeter and Sarah Cooper of St Hugh's College for their invaluable work in providing the necessary infrastructure and support for a successful conference. Finally, without your participation this conference would not have been possible. I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to you.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you

Atul Gupta
