All those who presenter a Forum Paper (long or short presentation with Poster) must pay a Registration Fee. In addition there are provisions for Non-Attending Authors (NAA) to have their papers in the PLEA 2107 Proceedings on payment of the NAA Fee.

Kindly note that PLEA 2017 requires that the lead author must be registered for a paper to be presented and included in the proceedings. Each paper requires a registration and one lead author may not present more than one paper at the conference unless a supplementary fee is paid. However, if an author wishes to write and present more than one paper, that author must pay an additional fee. If an author cannot attend they may have their paper included in the Conference Proceedings for the payment of a NAA fee.

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

The NAA and the AAP 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.

NB: 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 1st of June to both present at the conference and/or to have their papers published in the proceedings as the programme will be fixed in the first week of June 2017.
