Decisions you need to make

Registration 'packages'

There are three basic packages for attending INLG04.
  • Full registration gives you forty-eight hours (12 noon, 14th July - 12 noon, 16th July) at the hotel, including all meals, two nights accommodation in a (non-shared) double room, with full access to the hotel fitness and spa facilities, plus conference attendence, delegate pack, proceedings etc..
  • Student registration gives the same package, but in a shared room (you may nominate a room-mate), at a reduced rate. The total number of student places in the hotel is limited to 20, and will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.
  • Non-residential registration allows for delegates who do not wish to stay at the hotel, but only attend the conference (and find accommodation elsewhere).

Additional items

  • Lunch on the first day (before the conference starts), is included, but lunch on the final day is an optional extra, which you need to request separately.
  • Full delegates may bring accompanying persons (to share their room) for an additional charge (which includes breakfast), and may additionally request lunches and/or dinners for them. Accompanying persons have full use of the hotel facilities, but may not participate in th conference.

Other relevant requirements


All payments must be made in pounds sterling. By far the easiest and quickest way to achieve this is personal credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, Delta or Switch). If this is not possible, you can send us a (sterling) cheque (payable to 'University of Brighton'). Please contact us if you wish to use some other form of payment (and note in particular that we cannot accept direct bank transfers).

ACL membership

Now that SIGGEN is affiliated to ACL, it is a requirement that all attendees at INLG conferences are also members of ACL. The registration form allows for regular or student membership to be included in the registration fee if you are not already a member (the fee is paid in pounds sterling, and includes the ACL late registration charge). If you have more complex membership requirements (discounts, multi-year membership etc.) please use the standard ACL membership form on the ACL website.


Careys Manor Hotel has a policy not to admit children under the age of 14. If you wish to bring children for your trip you will need to make arrangements to stay close by and attend the conference on a non-residential basis. We suggest you contact us before registering so we can advise on detailed arrangements.


Cancellation by 30th June 2004 will receive a full refund minus £20 administration charge. Cancellation after 30 June 2004 will not be refunded, but delegate will receive proceedings and ACL membership (if included).

Staying additional nights

It should be possible (subject to room availability) to stay additional nights at the hotel before or after the conference. However, the hotel have asked that you arrange this directly with them, not through the INLG04 conference booking procedure (as we do not have a block booking for these nights). For contact details see the Venue and travel page. The hotel recommends you book as soon as possible. This may mean, of course, that you book before we process your conference registration, so make sure you let them know you are with the conference. The advertised rates (bed and breakfast) are £129 (midweek) and £149 (weekend)
