The column at right contains a selection of presentation notes, etc., from past MRQC conventions (chronological order, most recent first). Occasionally the author's original notes (containing coloured images) have been used to create the files, thus page numbers may not agree with the b&w printed notes.
These materials are all © copyright by the authors and have been posted for non-commercial use only. Note that downloadable notes have not been released for all topics and there were no Conventions in 2014 (conflicting dates with other conventions) or 2020 (Covid).
