Registration Information

 

Registration is now open. Please register using the downloadable electronic registration form.

 

Registration form

The registration form is an electronic form, designed to be filled in on your computer rather than by hand. Some of the fields (e.g. title, room type and status) are drop-down lists, while others are calculated automatically based on the information you enter.

Please complete one registration form for each person participating in the Workshop. If you are being accompanied by anyone, please also complete a form for them either if they will be staying with you in Clare College, or if they wish to attend the welcome reception and/or banquet.

Versions

There are two version of this form: two each in Word and PDF. Both versions have fields for you to fill in and will automatically calculate any totals. If using the PDF version of the form, you will need to use Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, version 5.0 or later. Note that the form will not work with GhostView, although you should still be able to view and print the form.

Note these are electronic forms designed to be filled in electronically. Some of the fields (e.g. title, room type and status) are drop-down lists.

Once completed, you may return the form either by e-mail to s.dalziel@damtp.cam.ac.uk, specifying ‘IWPCTM9: Registration’ in the subject line, or by fax to +44 1223 765900. The e-mail option is preferred. Registrations will normally be acknowledged within three working days.

Accommodation

It hoped that most participants will be accommodated in Clare College. There are a number of reasons to recommend Clare:

·    You will get to sample the unique atmosphere of the college.

·    The rate is very competitive for a single person when compared with hotel accommodation.

·    The sense of community and a workshop where real progress is made will be greatly enhanced by having the majority of participants under a single roof.

·    There is a general shortage of accommodation in Cambridge over the summer.

·    In order to secure any accommodation with Clare College it was necessary for the workshop organisers to enter into an agreement that has penalty clauses should we end up not filling the reserved accommodation.

Priority will be given to those registering early. We note that Clare College does not allow children less than seven years of age and the cost for two sharing is only a discount of £2/person/night over the single occupancy cost.

For anyone needing to arrange their own accommodation, a list of available hotels and bed and breakfast accommodation may be found at the local tourist information web site http://www.cambridge.gov.uk/leisure/TICWEB/accommodation.htm. You should be aware that accommodation in Cambridge is generally fairly expensive. If you are after a hotel, then Arundel House Hotel (http://www.arundelhousehotels.co.uk/) is probably the most convenient mid-price hotel (double rooms £95 and up per night), about 15-20 minutes walk from the conference.

Standard

£35.00

Shared facilities

En suite

£48.00

Number limited

Twin

£46.00

Number limited; en suite.

Allocation of the limited number of en suite rooms is at the discretion of the organisers. Note that Clare College have set the cost of twin occupancy at only £2 less per person than the single occupancy rate. Most of the ‘standard’ rooms are not suitable for twin occupancy.

Full English breakfast is included in the cost of the room for the duration of the Workshop.

Evening meals

There will be a Welcome Reception in Clare College on Sunday evening and a Banquet on Thursday evening. The cost of both of these is included in the registration fee.

A £52.50 charge is added to the room charge for participants staying in Clare College to cover the cost of three-course evening meals on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Any wine or other beverages must be paid for separately.

Participants staying elsewhere in Cambridge can elect to join in for these evening meals by paying £52.50.

Clare College permits children at the evening meals (and can supply high chairs). I would suggest, however, that younger children may not have the patience for the Thursday evening banquet.

Evening meals are not provided before Sunday 18 July after the end of the Workshop.

College bar

The College bar will be open most evenings during the Workshop. This will provide an excellent venue for informal after-hours discussions.

Registration fee

The registration fee includes attendance at the Workshop, the Welcome Reception on Sunday evening, lunches and refreshments Monday to Friday, and the Banquet on Thursday. A book of abstracts will be issued upon arrival, and a CD or DVD proceedings will be compiled following the meeting. The registration fee also includes a contribution towards the cost of participation of our Russian colleagues.

Payment

The preferred method of payment is by credit card. If you register early, no charges will be made to your credit card until 1 May at the earliest. In all cases you will be notified by e-mail on the day your card is charged.

Payment must be received prior to 31 May to avoid the £100 late registration surcharge.

Travel

Participants from Europe are encouraged to fly into London Stanstead airport. This is located approximately one hour from Cambridge and is well connected both by regular coaches (approximately hourly) and by train. The Coach is more economical (£10.00 for a return trip) and will take you into the very centre of Cambridge. Details may be found at http://www.nationalexpress.com . London Luton airport is a similar distance, but connections are less frequent (again see http://www.nationalexpress.com).

International participants from elsewhere will find flying into London Heathrow more convenient than flying to London Gatwick. Again there is a coach approximately hourly from both these airports (http://www.nationalexpress.com), but journey times can fluctuate considerably depending on the time of day. It is best to assume three hours to/from Heathrow and four and a half hours to/from Gatwick. Rail connections via London are good, but require one or more changes. Additionally, the rail network can be disrupted on Sundays due to engineering works.

A limited amount of parking is available at Clare College. Parking will not be available at the Workshop venue except in exceptional circumstances. The Workshop venue is five to ten minutes walk from the accommodation.

Getting around in Cambridge

The centre of Cambridge is very compact and most people will find walking by far the most convenient method of getting around.

To get a better idea of the various locations, I suggest you go to either http://www.cam.ac.uk/map/ or http://www.multimap.com. Both are searchable.

For the University’s map, you will need to search on “DAMTP” for the conference venue, “Wolfson Court” for lunch, “Clare College” for the part of Clare where we shall eat, and “Memorial Court” for the accommodation. Hotels can also be searched for.

For multimap, which is useful for the broader view, use Quick Search to select Great Britain, then one of the following postcodes to establish where everything is: CB3 0WA (conference venue), CB3 0EH (Wolfson Court for lunch), CB2 1TL (the part of Clare College where we shall eat), and CB3 9AJ for the accommodation. The postcode of the Arundel House Hotel is CB4 3AN. Unfortunately, zooming in on multimap loses the footpaths and bridges across the river.
