    Thanks and I Googled to clarify what "indexed" meant in this context and if I understood correctly, it means the content can still be found on-line, if someone knew how to search for it, but it would not come up as part of a Google search. So I guess it would be much harder to find but it could be done by someone w/computer skills/background. Thanks again (and someone please correct me if I am wrong).

    @Jo Best do you know if there are any doctors or researchers from eastern Europe (I am especially interested in countries like Czech republic, Slovak republic, Poland, Hungary) who will attend the conference?
    Thanks

    Hi @Tuha I read that there are delegates from eighteen countries but I don't knwo if it includes countries in Eastern Europe, or others than the speakers listed on the conference and colloquium agenda.

    You could contact EUROMENE. The European ME association. I don't see those countries listed, but they may have informal contacts.

    Thanks @MEMum. Prof Simon Carding spoke about EUROMENE and EMERG at the 2016 conference.
    EUROMENE 'European ME Network' is a project of COST (Cooperation in Science and Technology).
    EMERG 'European ME Research Group' is a project of EMEA (European ME Alliance).
