Registration and Accommodation

Update 18 May 2016:  The conference is now FULL and no more Abstracts are being accepted.   If you are keen to be put on the waiting list, in case we have any drop outs, please contact David Summers (and copying to Chris Thomas).  Please do not try to book via the on-line shop.  The link to the on-line shop is only being left in place so you can check on your registration if you have already done that.

It is expected that all attendees will stay at Clare College but exceptions will be granted to Cambridge residents and people accompanied by children under 16 who are specifically excluded by College rules.

Conference packages include the registration fee and accommodation (bed and breakfast). The cost of accommodation varies depending on room type chosen. VAT is not charged on conference packages for delegates because it counts as an educational activity but is charged at 20% on packages for accompanying persons who will not be attending the conference sessions.

The delegate registration fee covers daily conference attendance (including refreshments and lunch) plus buffet and drinks reception on the first evening and the conference dinner at Gonville and Caius College. The registration fee for accompanying persons covers the buffet and drinks reception on the first evening and the conference dinner. The registration fee will increase by £40 from the 1st May 2016.

There are four types of accommodation: either twin or single and either ensuite (private bathroom for each room) or standard (sharing a communal set of toilet and washing facilities between a number of rooms). The following packages are available for delegates and accompanying persons.

Packages for delegates.

  1. Single en suite package = 785 GBP
  1. Single standard package = 635 GBP
  1. Twin en suite package per person = 665 GBP*
  1. Twin standard room package per person = 585 GBP*
  1. Cambridge resident package = £360

Packages for accompanying persons

  1. Single en suite package = 610 GBP
  1. Single standard package = 430 GBP
  1. Twin en suite package per person = 470 GBP*
  1. Twin standard room package per person = 370 GBP*

*Prices for twin rooms are per person, based on double occupancy. If you book a twin en suite or a twin standard room then, at the time of booking, please use the relevant box in the “Accompanying Person Information” section to indicate the name of the person with whom you wish to share (either an accompanying person or another delegate). If you do not register a preference the organisers will arrange sharing with a conference delegate of the same sex (please state male/female and first language in the “Accompanying Person Information” section). Do not try to book two delegates in a single transaction even if you plan to share a room.  Each delegate should register and pay separately.

To register and pay for one of these packages go to the conference page of University of Cambridge on-line shop.
