Registration for the New Chaucer Society Congress 2018 opens on 11 January 2018.
Please follow the link to Hart House Tickets to register. All prices and payments are in CAD - $1 CAD = $0.75-0.8 USD at time of writing.
All visitors to the Congress MUST register in advance, and should do so by 15 June 2018. After this date, registration rates will increase.
The local organizing committee for NCS 2018 has raised over $60,000 CAD in sponsorship. We have used this funding to keep registration and costs for the final dinner as low as possible, especially for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, adjunct and contingent faculty, retired members, unwaged scholars, and secondary school teachers - all of whom are eligible for concession rates. Guests - e.g. partners of delegates - may also register at a reduced rate. There are, however, no day rates and no walk-in registrations. The registration fee includes over 80 poster and paper sessions; three plenaries; two receptions and drinks and celebration after the final dinner; musical, dance, and dramatic performances; and tea and coffee breaks.
Registration rates are:
Regular - $245
Concession - $125
Guest - $125
Boxed lunches are an optional extra, at a cost of $16.50 per lunch. We recommend signing up for these lunches if you want to be sure of getting to the first afternoon session on time. For other options for eating lunch close by, see the conference Map.
The final dinner on Saturday 14 July is also optional. It will be held at local community arts centre, Daniels Spectrum, with a range of gourmet local foods and drinks provided at stations by Citizen Catering. After the dinner ends, the venue will be opened to all conference goers for a celebratory "Lydgate Ball" - more details to follow! The after-dinner event is free; you will receive tickets to it in your registration package, and there is no need to sign up for it separately. Costs for the dinner are:
Regular - $125
Concession - $65
Guest - $125
After registering you will be asked about dietary requirements. We can cater for halal, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets with enough warning.
