  • option to book on-site residential accommodation at reduced conference rate (via accommodation page)

Note:Delegates are responsible for arranging their own airfare/travel and accommodation. Delegates are also responsible for arranging their own visa travel approvals (if applicable) and are responsible for having their own medical and travel insurance in place. HETL and / or UWS are not liable for any injury to delegates or loss or damage to their property occurring during the conference unless such injury, loss or damage is a result of HETL and / or UWS negligence or wilful actions.

I reside outside Scotland, can HETL or UWS help me secure a visa to enter the venue country?

If your proposal has been accepted, we will only provide you with a “letter of invitation” to attend the conference. The “letter of invitation” is not a legal document and it does not by itself grant you permission to enter the venue country but you may use it to help you secure a visa if your country requires that you get visa approval one before departure. You should contact the appropriate government agency in your particular country to determine your country’s visa requirements.

How do I make air travel arrangements? Can HETL help with that?

Each conference participant is responsible for making their own airline reservations and paying for their own airline tickets.

Which hotel should I stay at while in Paisley?

Please refer to the accommodation page of this website.

Will an early-bird or discounted registration fee be offered?

Yes. Please see the registration information page for more information.

Will a book of proceedings be published?

Yes. All presentation abstracts will appear in the proceedings (electronic only).

Will full papers be accepted for possible publication?

Any presenter may submit a full paper but full paper submissions are optional. All full papers submitted will go through the normal double-blind refereed review process and the best papers will be accepted and published in a special issue(s) of our journal(s). For the special issues published from our last conference, see http://www.emeraldinsight.com/journals.htm?issn=2050-7003&volume=5&issue=2
