Well I’ve booked my place at the Oxford Patristics Conference (Monday 8th August to Friday 12th August 2011), using the website. The cost was less than I had feared — £256 — which is not too bad considering it includes accomodation. But with my record on conferences and cancellations, I ought to insure it, I suspect. I wonder how?
Accomodation seems to be going fast, tho. I’ve ended up in Queens college, rather than Christ Church. I don’t think I ever knew anyone there in my days at Oxford, and I don’t recall ever going there, so it will be a new experience for sure.
UPDATE: Oops. I seem to have only booked 1 night accomodation — poorly designed form. Another £294 will be required, I suspect. £550 is a much heftier sum, and will certainly need to be insured.
