That does sound interesting. I would certainly be interested, but it does seem a bit much. Shame they're not having it in Cambridge, I'd be able to save a bit in hotel costs :).

The price includes dinners, receptions, all other meals, snacks & accommodation. They don't give a conference only price.

Hi Martin, :)

I really wish you hadn't put this on a thread, because now I am going to have to convince my wife, that it will be a good investment for me to go !!!!!!!!!!!!!! :P

Oh no ! Where do I start ? :D

Cheers

Tim.

Quite how they can hold a conference on Verdun without asking Christina Holstein to address it I simply can't imagine (and I told her that when she gave me the brochure last Saturday). The sheer cheek of it could only come from Oxbridge.

I shan't be going, as, apart from anything else I have to add the cost of getting there to the cost of the weekend and that will just about double it.

Wow, that makes the price not too bad at all.
