Accepted presenters will get roughly a 50% discount on the normal ticket price for the day (online or in person) of their presentations.

The full details of our call for papers is now available!

Tickets will be released as soon as possible, but only once we've reviewed proposals and confirmed presenters as we offer significant discounts to anyone presenting.

Prices are expected to be in the region of £35 (£52 non-members of ALN) for the online day only, £95 (£145 non-members of ALN) for both the online and in-person days (presenters will get roughly a 50% discount), which will be confirmed shortly.

About the "in-person" venue

The in-person day will be in Central Leeds at St. George's Centre, a short walk from the train station, behind Leeds General Infirmary. Anyone based in and around Leeds is likely to have heard of St George's, who provide support, food, emergency accommodation, training, and more to struggling people in the area. Catering will be provided by Nurture Catering at St George's Crypt. Using this venue helps support the communities in which we are based.
