The Conference Organising Committee, or its agents, will not be responsible for any medical expenses, loss, damages or accidents during the Event. We would in particular draw your attention to the cancellation policy in respect of registration fees and accommodation. In the event that, for whatever reason, the Conference has to be cancelled or postponed, the Organising Committee, and/or its agents, will be responsible only for refund of monies received. We recommend that delegates insure themselves for medical and cancellation charges.

Visas And Passports

You’ll find a handy tool on the GOV.UK website to check if you need a visa. Simply enter the country that issued your passport or travel documents and what you want the visa for, for example work, study or visiting.

The checker will tell you if you need a visa and give you information on how to apply.
