This year’s Gikii took place in London hosted by the always marvellous Andrea Matwyshyn. As usual, there were more cat slides than a cat video convention, and as always some amazing presentations and thought-provoking interventions. And some good-natured heckling of course.

Some of the papers are now online, you’ll just have to imagine the cat jokes that accompany them.
