General information


The booking page is now closed. Please contact and if you would like to attend the conference. Thank you.

Conference fee to cover tea, coffee, reception and lunch:

£45 (£30 for students and speakers; free for UWTSD students)

We have applied for funding to reimburse speakers’ expenses, but we still cannot promise you any reimbursement at the moment and it seems increasingly unlikely that we will receive any additional funding. Please do try to find alternative funding opportunities if you need them, e.g. from your home institutions.

Funding opportunities for PhD students:

There are lots of funding opportunities for PhD students to attend conferences (in the U.K., see for example the Thomas Wiedemann Memorial Fund)

Accommodation will be available on the Lampeter campus (en-suite rooms in student halls) for £30 per night including breakfast (see booking form). But you are free to make your own arrangements.

The Call for Papers is now closed.
Thanks to all of you from across the world who have already sent us their abstracts! See "Programme" and "Abstracts" for more information.


Apart from English and Welsh, papers in French, Spanish, Italian, German, etc. are of course welcome. We would also ask delegates who wish to present papers in languages other than English to consider providing their abstract, PowerPoint presentations and other visual media in English for the benefit of all conference delegates (simultaneous translation of papers into English will only be available for papers in Welsh).
