If you would like to attend the meeting please complete and return the form electronically, and send the requisite payment. The deadline for registration is Monday 24th February. While it may well be possible to register after this date – and it will certainly be worth asking - I cannot offer any guarantees. That aside, if the meeting is over-subscribed priority will be given to those who register first. So if you want to come it is a good idea to register immediately.
The conference is sponsored by generous contributions from the British Wittgenstein Society.
