Registration Guidelines

All presenters must pay either a three day a Professional or a Student Registration Fee.

Kindly note that PLEA 2017 requires that the lead author must pay a three day registration fee by the 5th of June for their paper to be presented and published in the proceedings. At this point the programme will be finalised. Each paper requires a registration and one lead author may not present more than one paper at the conference unless a second paper fee is also paid for each additional paper. If an author cannot attend they may have their paper included in the Conference Proceedings on payment of a non-attending author's fee.

  1. Non-Attending Author's Fee of £200 to have a paper published in the proceedings
  2. Attending Author's 2nd Paper Presenting Fee of £250.

These fees cover the not inconsiderable expenses incurred in the handling, refereeing and publication of papers in the conference proceedings and the provision of space and programming of presentations in the busy schedule.

The author, by submitting a paper for the conference, is guaranteeing that the work submitted is original and has not been previously published.
All Attendees (including students) who are presenting papers and those submitting papers for inclusion in the conference proceedings must register by the 5th of June to both present at the conference and/or to have their papers published in the proceedings.

All students must present evidence of the theirs students' status on registration.

Cancellation of Registration

Fees, minus a 10% administration fee, will be returned if cancellations occur before the 5th of June 2017 but not after that date.
