Total cost of the Conference:

The conference fee is expected to be about 300 euros (~$400; ~1200 PLN) per person. This will cover: the registration fee, one week lodging, all meals, transportation from/to Poznan (airport or railway station) to/from Bedlewo (both directions), banquet and possible local excursion. The conference fee for the accompanying person is reduced to 240 Euro. Payment can be made upon arrival to Bedlewo by a major credit card or cash in euro, dollars or Polish zloty.

Payment for the conference also can be made by bank transfer. If you pay this way, please keep a receipt and be ready to present it when you come to the Bedlewo Center!
