Conference costs

download the conference program pdf

Conference costs fall into two categories: conference fee and individual costs.

The conference fee is used to cover the costs of the conference meeting rooms, conference materials, rental of equipment needed for multimedia presetations, an hors d’oeuvres reception, a final luncheon the last day, and coffee/tea/water during breaks, etc. This fee in US dollars has been calculated at the lowest possible level and varies depending on the professional position of the participating scholar:


$145: Senior Faculty Members (Full Professors, Associate Professor)

$100: Junior Faculty Members and Emeriti (Assistant Professors, Instructors, Ph.D. and Graduate Students, Independent Scholars)

$50: Spouses or Partners

Individual cost, independent of the conference fee, are the travel costs of getting to Szczecin, hotel and food costs, and the cost of any optional tour packages offered by independent operators that you may choose.

We anticipate that even though August 2007 is still distant, the conference costs will be modest, with hotel rooms averaging about $40-$50 per night per person. Also, there is now a direct RyanAir flight from London to Szczecin for less than $100 (round-trip), and a low-cost conference bus will transport Participants to the conference from Berlin (which is less than two hours away). Please, check the "How to get there" section for prices of transportation from Berlin to Szczecin and hotel booking in Berlin we have negotiated with our partner, MittelWest-Europa.
