The Convention is now over. Many thanks to everyone who attended for making it a great success.


Registration costs for the conference are as follows. Registration includes admission to all convention sessions, and tea, coffee and lunch during the days of the convention. There will be an additional cost for the conference social event/dinner on the Tuesday evening.

AISB Member Cost AISB Non-member Cost
Early Registration (by 2nd April): 3-day registration £240 £290
Early Registration (by 2nd April): 2-day registration £200 £250

We have a large number of student bursaries, in the form of a 75 pound reduction in the registration cost. If you are interested in applying for a bursary please fill out this short form and email it to with the header "AISB Student Bursary". We will try to process bursary applications within a week and, if successful, we will email you with a link to register. We are also happy to consider applications for bursaries from people who are on low incomes/unemployed; please use the same form.

Note that registration costs have increased by 50 pounds for any registrations received on or after 3rd April.

Note that there is a separate rate for AISB members and non-members. In most cases, it will be more sensible for non-members to become AISB members rather than pay the increased rate.

Convention Social Event and Dinner

On the evening of the 21st April there will be an optional social event and dinner for attendees of the Convention. This will consist of a visit to the Shepherd Neame brewery—the oldest brewery in England. We will have a tour of the brewery, a beer tasting, and a two-course meal. Non-alcoholic drinks are of course available, and the venue can cater for special dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten-free meals, etc. Tickets for this are now SOLD OUT but email if you want to be placed on the reserve list.


We have reserved En-suite Bed and Breakfast rooms on-campus in Keynes College. These are all within 5 minutes talk of the Grimond Building where the convention will be taking place. We recommend that convention delegates stay on campus, as it is very convenient for the conference location. The cost of these rooms is £43 per night. Please email Colin Johnson ( to enquire about further availability of on-campus accommodation.

Alternatively, there are a number of hotels in Canterbury. Here is a selection; all of these are within easy reach of the University by public transport.
