  • The evening buffet on day 1 is included in the fee and those attending day 2 only, are most welcome to attend the evening buffet on day one. Just make sure you register for it.
  • Information for the poster presenters: In order to present your poster at the Festival you must register and pay the full fee.

Registration will open in December 2014. Further details on how to register will be posted then.

DO I AS LECTURER OR POSTER PRESENTER NEED TO REGISTER TO THE FESTIVAL?
As lecturer you still need to register to the conference. This is important for several reasons:

  • We need to know which seminars you wish to attend other than your own and please make sure you also choose the seminar in which you are the lecturer.
  • We need to know if you are attending the buffet and if you have food allergies.
  • We need to know if you are staying the entire conference.

I'M ONLY ATTENDING THE DAY I'M GIVING A LECTURE AND I'M THE ONLY LECTURER IN MY SESSION. WHY DO I STILL NEED TO REGISTER MY INVOICE ADDRESS?
We still need to know your invoice address. This is merely a technicality which is needed for our customer database system. You will not be invoiced. (Note: this does not apply to seminars with more than one lecturer. Lecturer 2 and 3 etc will be invoiced).
