Dear EASST members,
Greeting from Lancaster, UK. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Lancaster at the EASST
2018 Conference on 25th-28th July. https://easst2018.easst.net/ We are currently finalising the
conference programme and we are very excited about it. The array of papers, events, activities and
plenaries are impressive. Registration is open and early-bird rates are available until May 16
Here are some details about how to register (also on the web page):
- Everyone wishing to attend the conference must register online and in advance. You do not
have to pay at the time of registration; an invoice will be emailed to you that details
payment instructions and deadlines.
- Registration includes access to the opening reception, the plenary and sub-plenary sessions,
panel sessions, the book exhibit, all the fringe events (e.g. sign up events such as tree
planting and a visit to the University wind turbine), and tea/coffee during the morning and
afternoon breaks and lunches. You will receive a printed conference programme on arrival.
Registration also includes bus travel between the city and the University.
- Please register for the social event on the Friday night. We have worked hard to organise an
event that will be enjoyable for everyone. It will take place in a marquee on the University
campus. Your ticket includes a range of international street food, a drink, music installations,
live music and dancing, and more. There will be a cash bar serving locally brewed beers, as
well as a gin bar and a cocktail bar. There is an extra cost for this event (note there is a
concession rate) and you need to book this at the time of Registration.
