Global Catastrophic Risks Conference - Registration

1. Deadline for registration passed

Although registration has now officially closed, you may still be able to register. Please contact risks@philosophy.ox.ac.uk to enquire further.

2. Conference Fee

The conference fee includes attendance at all lectures throughout the conference, a buffet lunch on Friday and Saturday, and refreshments throughout.

We offer a reduced rate for students of 40. Please be advised that proof of status (a photocopy of a valid student card or a letter or document from your institution) must be received along with payment and the registration form by 18th June 2008.

3. Information about Optional Events

The conference dinner includes a candlelit three course meal, with wine, coffee and predinner drinks. The dinner will be held in the elegant and intimate refectory at St Benet's Hall (a permanent private hall of the university). See for more details of this venue.

The punting trip will take place on the Cherwell River, and we will leave from Magdelen Bridge punthouse at 7.15pm on Saturday, and return at 8,45pm. The price includes hire of the punts, which will be shared among the delegates and self-driven. Punting is a popular summer past-time in Oxford, and provides a great opportunity to get on the river in summer time. More information about punting can be found at . Chauffered punts can be arranged during the conference at an extra cost if there is demand for this. We recommend that delegates bring a picnic to the punting trip (there are numerous supermarkets conveniently located in the centre of Oxford). In case of inclement weather, an alternative activity will be arranged.

4. Accommodation

The conference accommodation is in Wadham College. The college provides bed and breakfast accommodation with shared bathroom facilities. More information can be found on the accommodation page. July is an extremely busy time in Oxford and accommodation is always at a premium, with visitors of all kinds drawn to Oxford. If you are organizing your own accommodation, we therefore strongly advise that you do so prior to sending your registration form and payment, as we cannot accept cancellations.
