Registration details

Researchers interested in participating in the conference are encouraged to register. Only invited and registered participants will be permitted to attend the lectures and other conference events. The registration fee of £40 includes the cost of lunches (at Churchill College), and other conference events, but not the conference banquet.

To register please submit the registration form and send the registration fee and the cost of any banquet tickets using one of the methods described below.

The Conference Banquet dinner will be in the Old Hall, Queens' College on Monday 7 September, and banquet tickets may be ordered at £45 per ticket. Your registration will not be confirmed until your payment is received.


A limited number of ensuite and semi-ensuite accommodation (65.00 and 55.00 per person per night respectively, and allocated on a first come first served basis) including breakfast, is available at St Edmund's College, which is only a 10-15 min walk from the IoA. The semi-ensuite rooms only have a washbasin (shared toilets).

Alternatively check out the accommodation listed at Cambridge Visitor Information Centre or Cambridge Rooms to Book if you wish to make your own arrangements. Participants are advised to book early, since Cambridge has a large influx of tourists in the summer months.
