All those wishing to attend the conference regardless of role – whether presenting, convening, discussing, listening – must register online and in advance. This does not necessitate paying at that time; registrations are manually checked and an invoice emailed to delegates including payment instructions. On receiving the invoice, you have thirty days to pay.
Full conference registration includes access to the opening reception, the plenary and sub-plenary sessions, panel sessions, the book exhibit, all the fringe events, tea/coffee during the morning and afternoon breaks and lunches. A printed conference programme will be provided to all delegates on arrival. Registration also includes bus travel between the city and the University.
We have worked hard to organise an exciting social event that (we hope) will have something for everyone. It is on the Friday night. There is an extra cost for this but we encourage you to try to come along, the music, food and installations are not to be missed! You need to book this at at the time of registration. Your ticket gives you complimentary access to a range of international street food, a drink, live music and more. There will be a cash bar serving local cask beers, as well as a gin bar and a cocktail bar.
While joining EASST is not obligatory, membership costs just €40/25 and offers you a considerable discount on the conference fee. Joining and paying the membership fee is a separate process from conference registration. Read more about membership and apply here.

Accommodation should be booked separately. The conference takes place on a campus university which is a reasonable distance from the town. Furthermore the town’s supply of visitor accommodation is not huge. Consequently we strongly recommend booking your accommodation early and staying in University accommodation on campus.
The University is offering single en-suite rooms in Cartmel (the south side of the campus) and twin or double en-suite rooms* in John Creed County South (north side of the campus). The singles are £52.95/night, including breakfast; the double occupancy rooms are £67.95/night, including breakfasts. To see the available rooms copy the promotion code, EASSTBB18, and paste that into this booking form.

*Single rooms should be available for nights of 22nd to 28th inclusive, and twin rooms available for nights of 22nd to 27th inclusive. The doubles have sold out. If you are trying for these longer date ranges and cannot locate a room (the form is somewhat troublesome!), please contact the conference administrators who will try to arrange things with the Lancaster accommodation office.
Please visit our travel page, to learn how to reach Lancaster and the University campus. Remember that registration includes bus travel between campus and the city.
