Booking information

Conference Fees

Please note that all costs are inclusive of VAT. To book your place please visit the online store.

Booking OptionCost
Two Day Conference Fee £380.00
Friday 19 June only £210.00
Saturday 20 June only £210.00
Dinner £53.00

As indicated in the call for papers information, it is expected that those whose proposals are accepted will also register as conference participants.

The delegate rates include all materials and refreshments during the conference. Our experience is that not everyone wishes to attend the conference dinner, and that some of those who wish to attend the conference dinner wish to bring guests, so dinner is available as a separate booking option. The dinner will be held in the Courtroom which is located on the city campus where the conference is being held.

Please note that accommodation is not included within the conference fees. Information about hotels local to the conference venue is available on request. Please contact the conference organisers at CLEConference2020@ntu.ac.uk for further information.

Visa letters, where required, will be made available only after full payment of the conference fees has been received.
