Registration and funding

Please register for this meeting as early as possible by writing to Anne Henke by 30th September, at the latest. Please let Anne know which day(s) you will be attending, and whether or not you wish to come to the dinner (approximate cost £25; details to follow), and any dietary requirements. There will also be a small cost (about £10) to cover coffee, cake etc.

Participants from France and Germany will be supported by the Anglo-French-German Representation Theory network. Please apply for funding to Anne Henke by 30th June at the latest, stating separately how much funding is needed for travel and how much for accommodation.

The BLOC meeting is supported by an LMS Scheme 3 grant. This is used to help offset travel costs for those from institutions participating in the scheme, with priority given to speakers and postgraduates.  Funds are limited so if participants can find funding from other sources that is helpful! For more information about funding for this meeting, please email Nicole Snashall.
