Visa Letter

International delegates should be aware of visa requirements when entering the UK. Please plan your travel well in advance and allow plenty of time to apply for a visa. If you will require a Visa Invitation Letter, please indicate this on the Registration Form. You will be contacted about the issuing of the letter upon successful payment of the registration fee.

If you are unable to obtain a visa, our cancellation policy still applies. Please note, no refunds will be given from 31st May.


Registration Notes

  1. Proof of status is required for all student registrations. Student ID or a letter from the institution is required.
  2. The Organising Committee expects that at least one of the co-authors register to the symposium in order to include the paper in the symposium proceedings. A single registration is expected to entitle the registered author for a reasonable number of papers to be included in the symposium proceedings.
  3.  The Organising Committee will make all efforts to allow each paper to be presented at the symposium. However, should the number of papers be very high, the Organising Committee will recommend some of the papers to be presented in the poster session.
  4. Attendance at the welcome drinks reception cannot be guaranteed for registrations made after the 7th June 2019.
  5. Attendance at the social dinner cannot be guaranteed for registrations made after 31st May 2019.
  6. Each delegate can register one guest for a cost of £60. This registration allows attendance at the gala dinner and drinks reception. Please note that access to the symposium is not possible for guests for security reasons. Each guest must register separately and tick the appropriate box in the registration form.
