Note that the conference organisers would appreciate early registration.

Notes on payment:
Please ensure that you register before attempting to pay. If you have already registered for the conference but not yet paid, then please visit the payments page and use the PayPal buttons available there.

If you cannot pay using the PayPal method, it is also possible to pay by cheque drawn on a UK bank account, or by Sterling Travellers Cheque. If using either of these methods please make cheques payable to "Groups 1997" (this is not a mistake - we are re-using a bank account first opened for the finances of Groups St Andrews 1997 in Bath). Cheques should be posted to

We may in exceptional circumstances be able to accept payment using another method (we can give no guarantee), but in such cases we will charge a fee for this facility (not less than 15% of the due amount) in order to cover our costs.
