Conference Fee

The Conference fee (per person) is:

Regular rate £200
Student rate £150

The conference fee will cover the cost of the morning and afternoon coffee, a simple daily lunch buffet, and the Conference Dinner in Mansfield College, in total £110. Payment of the Registration Fee (and Accommodation at St Anne's College) should be made at this link. In addition, many additional dining options remain in nearby coffee shops and outside restaurants. In the evenings you will be free to choose from amongst the many fine restaurants in and around Oxford.


We have made a block booking for en suite rooms including breakfast at St Anne's College, where we recommend that you book. The cost of the rooms is approximately £75 per night. This should be booked and paid for when you enter your details during the Registration process >here<. If you wish to book for additional nights before the 8th or after the 11th July) then you will need to separately book the >additional< nights at the the linked St Anne's payment site here). Depending on the final number of Delegates, we will either extend the number or reservations we have on hold, or make bookings at other colleges as appropriate. Please see our Accommodation page for details of other hotel and College possibilities. It is strongly recommended that you book as early as you can so that your first preference can be met. If we exceed the reserved quota of rooms, we will attempt to place delegates in other College accommodation at a similar cost.


As above, payment of the conference registration fee (which includes the Conference Banquet) should be made at this >link<. You will be required to fill your virtual shopping basket like a usual shopping web site. You must select the registration fee, and >additional< guests for the conference dinner (remembering that the Registration Fee includes the Conference Dinner costs for Delegates) and for each night of accommodation in St Anne's College separately. We apologise, but it is not possible to select dates other than those between 8 and 11th July. The en suite rooms are single rooms with a private bathroom.

Note that all participants must pay the registration fee, unless the organisers have specifically told you so (the ability to waive or lower the Registration Fee depends on sponsorship applications that are still under discussion).

Unless you have registered already, you will be required to create an account with your details, billing address (the delivery address is meaningless for our purposes), and credit/debit card details. Sorry, but Oxford University do not accept any other form of payment through their on-line payment site.

If you experiment difficulties with the payment or Registration web site, or would need to pay by some other way, such as a Bank transfer, please contact our Conference Officer, Leanne O'Donnell by email: (, who will be able to help you.

We look forward to seeing you in Oxford in July!
