Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where exactly is the conference taking place?
A: The Old College at the University of Edinburgh [map].

Q: Do we need to submit a full paper in advance?
A: No. We only publish the abstracts in the programme.

Q: Is there any funding available for the conference?
A: We regret that we are unable to provide any financial support for the conference.

Q: Can I participate remotely?
A: We have tried remote participation in the past and we have not been able to make it work reliably. It is something we hope offer in the future, but it is not something we can offer for the 2024 conference, although the plenaries will be livestreamed.

We do recognise that the answers to the two questions above have the effect of making it a lot harder for a lot of people, particularly from the global south, to attend the conference. We are working on changing that for the future, but it’s not something we’re able to do at the moment.

Q: How much will registration cost?
A: £90 for students and £170 for non-students

Q: Can you help with obtaining a visa?
A: Yes. Once you have registered for the conference, we will happily issue a letter in support of a visa application.

Q: Can you help with accommodation in Edinburgh?
A: On registering, you will receive an email with a link for discounted accommodation in Edinburgh.
