The Gulf Research Meeting provides participants who present a paper with a travel allowance based on the country of departure. In the case of more than one author for a single paper, only one travel allowance will be paid. The allowance is provided to help offset the travel expense and is not meant to cover the entire expense. Participants will receive their travel allowance on the last day of the meeting. There are no allowances provided prior to the meeting.
Kindly note that since 2016 travel allowance have been reviewed as follows:
|Authors and coauthors based in UK||GBP 100|

|Authors and coauthors based in any other part of the world||GBP 250|
All those participants that require a visa for the UK must request a letter of invitation from us to facilitate visa procedures. The Gulf Research Meeting is not responsible for arranging the visa. Each participant must ensure that they apply for the required visa on time and that they meet all requirements for the visa process. Participants shall inquire about the period needed for visa obtainment as soon as they are informed of their selection in order to avoid last minute participation cancellation linked to visa issues.
Participants pay for their own accommodation. There will be different price categories to choose from.
Accommodation will be provided at Cambridge University and will include both en-suite and non en-suite facilities. All rooms will be within walking distance to the meeting venue.
