Memories from last ECDHM

3rd ECDHM September 2018:

Many of our attendees have asked if the slides from the oral presentations could be distributed to ECDHM 2018 attendees.
We have asked all speakers if we may share their slides as pdf files - either as the full version, a revised version or none of it.
Available presentations are listed below, each with a link to the presentation.
