Financial Support:

NEW: We have a simplified (slightly more generous) funding formula:

All registered participants: We can pay your accommodation (on 5th Jan only), conference meal, both lunches, tea and coffee. We will book the accommodation for you, (you will be informed on 21 December of the details) but you will pay for it yourself (40-60 GBP) and we will then reimburse you. IF YOU PAY ON THE THURSDAY, YOU CAN SUBMIT ALL YOUR FORMS TO US ON THE FRIDAY BEFORE LEAVING. You should seek alternative funds for travel (e.g. from your dept).

Senior people with access to alternative funds to pay their accommodation are encouraged to use them.
