Frequently asked questions 

Do I need to be a CSP member to submit an abstract?

For the main conference, we welcome abstract submissions from anyone. For the student conference, we can only accept submissions from CSP student members. Find out more about the benefits of student membership. 


What's the difference between the student conference and the main conference?

Both conferences are part of the same event.

The student conference will take place on Thursday 10 October. CSP student members can book an in-person or online ticket for free to the student conference. 

The main conference will take place on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 October. 


Do I need to pay for a ticket to attend?

If you are presenting as part of a symposium, you will be able to attend the day of your presentation for free, but will need to cover other costs.

If you are attending to present an abstract at the main conference, on 11-12 October, you will need to buy a ticket to attend.

If you are a CSP student member and are presenting at the student conference on 10 October, you will be able to book a ticket for free. 


Is there financial support to attend?

In 2023 we ran a pilot widening participation grant which we are currently evaluating. If we run it again in 2024, you will find information about this on our conference web pages.
