Registration is still open but (unless you are submitting a paper) you will now go on to a waiting list.
Normally a number of registrants withdraw before the conference, and we allocate their places to those waiting. Most withdrawals happen close to the conference date, though, so you may not be sure about a place for some time.
Attendance costs £15, which pays for refreshments and the evening reception, but not lunch.
Pay on the day, in cash only please. The meeting is popular, so we recommend booking early.
