The 11th International Conference on Finite-State Methods and Natural Language Processing

Held at the Gateway, St Andrews, Scotland (UK), July 15-17, 2013.


Registration

The standard registration fees includes:

  • all sessions of the conference
  • lunches and coffee breaks
  • wine reception
  • guided walk
  • conference dinner in Lower College Hall
  • classical concert in St Salvator's Chapel
  • conference pack with proceedings, town map, vouchers, etc.
  • 3 star guest accommodation (bed and breakfast)

The accommodation (limited availability) is in Agnes Blackadder Hall. All rooms have en-suite shower rooms, double beds, tea/coffee making facilities, alarm clocks, wi-fi and TVs. Different packages are available, depending on the duration of the stay in the accommodation.

Standard packages

There are four standard packages, each offering all elements of the registration as listed above, differing only in the duration of the stay in the accommodation:

  • 2 nights Mon-Wed: arrival Monday July 15, departure Wednesday July 17
  • 3 nights Sun-Wed: arrival Sunday July 14, departure Wednesday July 17
  • 3 nights Mon-Thu: arrival Monday July 15, departure Thursday July 18
  • 4 nights Sun-Thu: arrival Sunday July 14, departure Thursday July 18

Agnes Blackadder Hall has check-in from 14:00 on the day of arrival and check-out before 10:00 on the day of departure.

Accompanying persons

With a surcharge, the standard packages can be extended to offer double occupancy of the accommodation (bed and breakfast). You may also request an extra place at the conference dinner for an accompanying person (this includes the concert as well).

Without accommodation

There is also a '0-nights' package, offering all elements of the registration as listed above, except for accommodation. This is mainly intended for local participants. After the accommodation we booked in Agnes Blackadder Hall has been exhausted, this may be the only remaining option. In St Andrews, there are many hotels, guest houses and bed & breakfasts in various price ranges. You are unlikely to find better offers than those included in our standard packages however.

Additional accommodation

If you want to stay longer than the periods offered by the standard packages, you can book additional nights at Agnes Blackadder Hall yourself; you might want to negotiate with them that you don't need to change rooms. Alternatively, you could consider other accommodation in town.

If you want to register with an accompanying person, use the "guest" option, which appears after you have filled in your own personal details. Be sure to choose the same accommodation option for yourself and for your partner.
