Information on eligibility and how to sign up to the SGPE's Residential Conference 2020.

SGPE MSc students

MSc students are informed by email of their registration requirements for Crieff. MSc students should follow this guidance, and contact sgpe@ed.ac.uk if they have any queries.

MSc students are required to attend both days of the conference. Travel and accommodation are provided by the SGPE.

SGPE PhD students

Normally only PhD students who are enrolled with one of the SGPE Partner institutions are eligible to be affiliated as an SGPE PhD. PhD students who are not members of the SGPE must apply to join beforehand, usually by October in the year before the conference. The deadline for applying for affiliation for the 2020 conference is 2pm on the 1st of November 2019.

Attendance at the conference is required of all SGPE PhDs who are not in their fourth/writing-up year, or beyond. Affiliated PhD students in their fourth/writing-up year are welcome to attend, but this is optional. The link below allows you to sign up for the conference, and to provide us with details of your paper for the discussant.  Please complete registration by the 19th of November.  We may not be able to guarantee your accommodation or a discussant if you submit after this date.

SGPE staff will receive an email in November with details of how to sign up for the conference.

Travel and accommodation for SGPE staff are covered by the programme. Spouses and family are welcome to attend but their expenses will not be covered (details of the extra costs are included in the registration information). You are welcome to extend your stay beyond the Thursday and Friday, at a rate determined by the Crieff Hydro.
