We are really excited about hosting IVFDF and we'd like to let you know about all the exciting things we have planned. Every Friday we will be posting a blog post complete with some news and obligatory cheesy puns, they will appear below.

If you don't want to open up your web browser every Friday then you can also receive the post emailed straight to your inbox. Sign up to receive weekly news emails

If all the news you really care about is getting notifications of when tickets go on sale and when the final timetable is published we have a different mailing list called soc-ivfdf-low-volume. As the name suggests you will only get a couple of emails from this list over the whole of the year, we won't be filling your inbox. Sign up to receive major announcements
