4 – How much does it cost to participate?

This year, a small fee will be charged to register for the symposium. Unfortunately, in previous years, there has been a high number of registered attendees that did not show up, causing food waste and preventing potential members from attending (those that were not able to register) as the event was fully booked.

Members, out of London – £10

Members, London – £20

Non-members – £30

*Full refund is available until the 7th May 2017

*If you have any financial difficulty to pay for the fee, please contact us on symposium@sruk.org.uk.

There will be a Symposium dinner, to which you will need to register separately.

Please, check out the Symposium Dinner section.

The registration allows attendance to the Inauguration Event Reception on Friday 7th July 2017, and the two-day symposium and the workshops (8th and 9th July 2017).

Friday drinks and nibbles, all coffee breaks, and Saturday and Sunday lunches are also included.

The Symposium dinner (Saturday 8th July 2017) is not included, and you will need to purchase it separately.

6 – Are there travel grants for the V SRUK/CERU symposium attendants?
