The Group is organising an ongoing programme of conferences for the coming years. Researchers who consider that they might be able to deliver a paper on a subject relevant to any of the coming conferences are invited to write to the Docklands History Group with a brief synopsis of the proposed paper. Papers should be written so that they can be given in half an hour. It is intended that proceedings of the conferences will be published and contributors should confirm that thy will be able to deliver their final papers to the editorial team within six months of the conferences.
