*The 2019 Conference has now sold out. We are only accepting bookings from unregistered Working Group convenors and presenters at this time. If you would like to register but are not either a convenor or due to present, please email and we will add you to our waiting list.*

Please note, anyone registering who is not either a convenor or presenter will have their money refunded and be taken off the delegate list, so we ask please that you do not register unless you are in the above groups.

*For presenters and WG convenors*:

There are two tiers of payment depending on your circumstances. Please see below for details of prices. All delegates are to register either as Standard or Concession rates (Life Members, Bursary Winners, Prize Winners or Board Members excepted).

Concessions apply to all postgraduate researchers, unwaged and retired researchers, and staff on contracts of less that 0.6FTE or else fixed for less than 12 months. This applies to the delegate’s circumstances on the first day of the conference.

Standard rate full: £245

Standard day rate: £140

Concession: £142

Concession day rate: £107

On the online store, you will need to click through to whichever tier you’d like to register at (standard or concession) and then choose either the full conference or the day rate and add optional extras such as dinner.

Please note unless you click either ‘full conference’ or ‘day rate’ the price will show as £0 and you will not have registered for the conference, even if you ‘check out’ and receive a confirmation email.

All conference registrations include TaPRA Membership at the rate of £35 for standard delegates and £17 for concessions.

Programme details will be released in the summer of 2019.
