Notes for poster-presenters: The poster displays will be set up on the evening before the poster session. You will have a space of about 5' (wide) x 3'9" (high) (152 cm wide x 114 cm high) for your poster. Each person presenting a poster will be provided with the means to affix their posters to the display board. Please feel free to bring handouts with you, so that those viewing your poster also have something to take away. Posters in previous years have taken a wide variety of forms, and there is no one single way to produce a good poster; the important things are that the font size is not too small, that it is easily readable and does not have too much text on it, that it sets out the main points that you want to argue for clearly, and maybe that it's eye catching, too. Some presenters bring one big poster which takes up all the space, others bring a series of A3 or A4 sheets of paper which can be fitted together on the poster board. During the poster session, you will be asked to stand by your poster (for at least a fair amount of the session) as conference participants walk around the displays, read your posters and ask you questions about them.
The full-price, all-inclusive conference fee is GBPounds 120.00 (for bookings received by 2nd May 2008); this includes all meals (apart from breakfast, which you will want to book at your hotel). It is also possible to book for individual items, if you do not want to book all meals, and this will reduce the price you have to pay. The all-inclusive conference fee for students and unwaged participants is GBP 60.00 (for bookings received by 2nd May 2008).
No more booking forms may now be sent in. If you would like to attend the 16mfm and have not yet booked, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference fee does not cover accommodation, which you will need to book yourself (please use the information on the accommodation page to make your own arrangements).
Some of you will probably also want to stay in Manchester during the evening of Saturday (24th). For those that do, it might be nice to meet up for a post-conference meal. Jill Beckman has kindly agreed to organise a trip to a restaurant for the Saturday evening - this will be to the Mongolian Barbecue restaurant in the centre of Manchester. If you would like to come along to the meal on the 24th, please email Jill (using this address: jbeckmnmchsi.com), with "Mongolian Barbecue" in the subject line of the message by 16th May.
Detailed information on accommodation possibilities and on how to get to the conference (with a selection of maps) are provided on separate pages:
