The 1st REMIT conference took place in Leuven, Belgium on May 16-17, 2024. The conference, mostly in-person, but containing a hybrid element for selected sessions, drew 97 attendees over the two days, 4 of whom were online listeners. As the inaugural conference had 114 registrations, the very high percentage of participants is a point of pride for the project, as well as showing the importance of the research done.

In addition to standard registration, the conference had a Call for Contributions, looking for those from young researchers for a panel-format plenary session, and PhD candidates for a more conversational PhD Special Session. The former ended up garnering so many strong applications, the planned plenary was instead split into parallel sessions based on the topics.

The conference consisted of 13 thematic sessions, and an additional PhD special session following the closing lunch. Of the 13, 8 were held in a parallel format.There were also 5 plenaries of which 4  either were or contained keynotes, and one had a roundtable format.
