Format of Symposium

At the time of registration you will be asked whether you would like to be considered for face-to-face participation if the opportunity arose. It is the intention of the Organising Committee to offer in July a limited number of attendances in person for which additional registration fees will be added to the registration fees for virtual attendance. These additional charges below would cover three lunches and refreshments in all of the breaks.

£155   Delegate member
£175   Delegate non-member
£105   Student, unemployed & retired member
£115   Student non-member

If Government guidance enables us to proceed with a face-to-face element, the Organising Committee will select (via a ballot*) participants from those delegates who have already registered for the online event and have confirmed that they are permitted to attend in person by their employer, where relevant. Bedrooms may be available in College, and attendees would book these direct with Churchill College.

*Selection of delegates will take diversity of the audience into account.
