The Registration Line will reopen at 12 noon on Saturday 23 March and the remaining places (plus any left over from the initial amount) will be available for everyone else, including any First Timers who did not manage to register previously. This will remain open until all the places have been taken. We will compile a waiting list should there still be requests for places thereafter. Further places may be available if sufficient funding is secured. The Registration Line is for the Conference only: hotel accommodation is NOT included.
