Cancellation by us
It is possible that we may have to cancel or make changes to SLS 2024. Changes will usually be minor and will not have any material effect on your conference experience. Minor changes could include for example the alteration of the advertised programme (including speakers) and timings of the event.
Where a change or cancellation must be made because of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances such as force majeure which are beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care, we will refund in full all registration fees, but hereby disclaim any further liability. Without limitation we will not be responsible for the cost of any train fare or other arrangements made in connection with attending the conference.
Code of Conduct
The SLS are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion and actively encourage diversity and promote inclusion and accessibility at our events. We value the participation of each individual and want all participants to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.
All communication and behaviour should therefore be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds.
Delegates violating these rules may be asked to leave the conference without a refund at the sole discretion of the conference organisers.
By accepting the terms and conditions of booking you agree to the SLS code of conduct which can be viewed in full here.

Payment must be made in GBP Sterling. Payments can be accepted by credit/debit card (Visa and Mastercard only) and by invoice with a strict 14-day payment term.
Please note if payment is not made by credit or debit card at the time of booking, this required either within 14 days of the date of registration or before Friday 2 August 2024, whichever is sooner (the due date will appear on your registration confirmation).
