Registration

 

Scientific registration is only open to applicants who pre-registered and received confirmation that they can attend the workshop. We request those applicants to submit the following scientific registration form by a deadline of 11 May.

Registration form (the registration has been closed)

Besides a broad and exciting series of review talks on black hole astrophysics, we will have space in the program for 30-40 contributed talks on topics related to the main review sessions, and will be able to provide poster space for any participants who wish to show their work but are not able to give a talk. Therefore we request that any participant wishing to give a talk or poster tick the appropriate box in the form and submit a title and abstract. We will decide and announce the final program in mid-May.

The final registration payment step will be via online payment or bank transfer and will take place in late May and early June, once the final conference program is confirmed (in case some participants need to confirm that they are able to give a talk before receiving funding to attend). Payment will include the registration fee (100 GBP for students, 150 GBP  for other participants) plus any accommodation cost if the on-site accommodation option is chosen (see below).  Note that the registration fee will include lunches for all days except Wednesday, as well as the cost of the conference dinner.

 

 

Pre-registration

 

Besides providing an opportunity to learn about the current status of theory and data interpretation in black hole research and interact with leading researchers in the field, the meeting will include contributed talks from the participants that will be linked to the subjects of each review session.  To allow for productive interactions and a collegial atmosphere, the workshop participation will be limited to ~70 in addition to the invited reviewers.  Therefore, we invite those interested in attending to pre-register here:

Accepted participants will be informed in the week beginning 4 April.

The conference fee will be set at a fairly low level (~100 GBP, TBC). Requests for financial support can also be made via the pre-registration form. We want to stress that participants will be chosen only on the basis of a close match to the workshop in terms of experience/topic of interest, or any other relevant circumstances that can be listed in the pre-registration form (e.g. interest in moving into a new field of research).  We will not look at requests for support until after the participant shortlist has been made, so they will not count against the request in the selection process, although we cannot guarantee that we all requests for financial support for participants can be satisfied.
