Costs for Participants
In order to cover conference costs and ensure a rich conference experience, we require a registration fee of no more than 25 euro from each conference participant. The exact amount will still to be determined and will depend on the extent of sponsorship we are able to secure for LESC 2019.
LESC 2019 is looking into possible travel cost reimbursement for conference participants, but we cannot guarantee it and encourage you to file a funding request with your own university when your participation is confirmed.
All conference participants will be hosted by members of the BCB student community, either in on-campus dormitories or by students who live in the neighbourhood. Your host will be able to give you further guidance around campus and advise you on getting around Berlin.
LESC 2019 can guarantee housing for conference participants from the evening of Wednesday the 1st May until the evening of Sunday the 5th May. If you arrive earlier and leave later than these dates, we will do our best to secure accommodation for you during your extended stay.
The registration fee will go towards covering the cost of seven meals over the course of four days. Mealtimes will give participants a chance to continue conversations in a non-academic setting and sustain them throughout the intensive conference program. Meals will be served either in the campus cafeteria or in the communal gardens (weather permitting). Conference participants are encouraged to take advantage of the many culinary delights of Berlin for the meals that are not provided for in the scope of the conference program.
Time of Arrival and Departure
The conference is set to begin early on Thursday afternoon and continue until late Sunday afternoon (2nd May- 5th May 2019), with academic discussion, lectures, and cultural activities throughout. Participants are encouraged to arrive and register on Wednesday the 1st May; late registration will still be possible on Thursday morning.
As we are relying on the graciousness of the BCB students to host conference participants during their stay while they are still attending classes, we gently encourage participants to arrive on Wednesday and depart on Sunday evening.
