ABSTRACTS, REGISTRATION, AND FUNDING

Registration has closed, and we have quite a substantial waiting list for a limited number of places. We aim to respond to all applicants by 15 Feb.


A priority for this workshop is inclusivity and balance in terms of national origin and career stage. We have internal funding to cover travel costs and registration-fee waivers in support of this goal—but probably not enough funding to cover everyone. As a result, the individual funding model is as follows:

  1. The workshop fee is £400, payable in spring 2020.
  2. We are happy to waive the workshop fee for participants from low income or lower-middle-income countries (as defined by the World Bank), as well as early-career scientists without a natural source of external support. (If you are not sure if you fall in this category, just explain on the form.)
  3. Participants are also warmly invited to request individual travel support (including a registration-fee waiver). We may not be able to honour all such requests, and will make funding decisions based on the overall international and career-stage balance of the meeting.

Please specify which category you fall in on the Registration form, and if 2) or 3), briefly explain your circumstances. Decisions about individual travel support will be made in January or Feburary 2020, at the same time as abstract acceptance, although exceptions may be made for participants who require extra time to arrange visas for travel to the UK.

Registration for the workshop includes lunches, morning/afternoon coffee breaks, and evening receptions. Participants should arrange their own travel, accommodation, and other meals (see Location for more info).
