* An early bird discount applies up until 1 March.  Conference registrations made after this date will incur a £50 charge.

** Categories A and B countries are based on World Bank GNI figures and roughly match those used by the ISA, who similarly differentiate by country of residence. A list of Category A Countries is available here, Category B countries are any country not on the Category A list.

Funding Opportunities
