Payment deadlines

Earlybird fees must reach us no later than 12 July 2012
To ensure publication of papers, author payments must reach us no later than 16 August 2012.
Other payments should reach us no later than 6 September 2012.
Registrations can still be made after this date, provided payment is received by credit/debit card at the time of booking.

Participants arriving at the conference without having pre-registered are welcome subject to availability. Payment will be required on arrival, and will be subject to a late registration surcharge of £100 on the relevant fee.

Changes and Amendments: Before finally submitting your registration, please check your order carefully as changes made to bookings after an invoice has been raised will be subject to an administration charge of £25 per change made. If you do notice that you have made a mistake please notify us by email so that we can help you before raising your invoice. All registration queries should be sent to Charl Walters

Cancellations: Please refer to cancellation terms and conditions.

Earlybird condition: In order to obtain the Earlybird rate, we must be in receipt of your full conference registration fee by the published Earlybird date. Although we endeavour to notify paper acceptance before this date, external factors may prevent this. In the event of an author subsequently failing to have a paper accepted for the conference, a refund can be made (cancellation charges apply).

Note to Authors: In order to have your paper published in the conference proceedings the final date for receipt of authors’ payment is 16 August 2012. Due to the large number of papers expected for this conference, the committee prefers that an author presents only one paper. However, if multiple papers are accepted for publication and presentation, each paper requires a separate registration fee.
