FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):

I am presenting a poster. What size should it be?

Presenting a poster @CLconf2019? If so, please print your poster in A0 size (portrait).

Can I get my poster printed in Cardiff?

If you are interested in getting your poster printed in Cardiff, why not contact: who may be able to help! @Print_Centre

I missed the registration deadline for CL2019. Can I still attend?

CL2019 is a cashless conference, so delegates are unable to simply turn up and pay, which is why they were required to register online in advance of the conference. If you missed the registration deadline it will, therefore, not be possible to attend this conference.

What are the catering arrangements for CL2019?

There will be two refreshment breaks and a lunch break on each day of the conference, including the workshop day. The food served at these breaks and lunches will be vegetarian/vegan, with additional dietary requirements catered for (these will have had to have been noted during the registration process). Teas/coffees, water and other refreshments will also be served throughout each day.

There will be nibbles and refreshments offered on Monday and Wednesday, but no dinner/evening meals are provided, aside from during the conference dinner on Thursday (which delegates had to book for when registering).

There are also various shops on campus that delegates can visit to purchase additional food and/or refreshments, as required. If you are interested in trying some of the restaurants and/or eateries in Cardiff, why not search Trip Adviser for the best rated establishments.

Will I be expected to provide a full written paper of my work in advance of the conference?

No. At present, there are no formally published proceedings attached to CL2019, only the book of abstracts.

I have some specific requirements. Who I should I inform of this?

Please notify the conference organising team of this ASAP so that we can best cater for your requirements:
