Registration and Payment

International Medieval Congress Registration

The Online Registration system for the International Medieval Congress 2017 has now closed. However, it is still possible to register as a new delegate on the day (or for the full week) at the IMC 2017 Information Desk in the Refectory Foyer at the University of Leeds. Alternatively you can complete a paper registration form.

Please note that the main registration deadlines have now passed. All registrations are subject to a 'very late fee' surcharge and are accepted at the discretion of the Congress administration. There may be limited or no availability of accommodation and registering on arrival at the Congress is not recommended.

Fee Concessions

Reduced fees are offered for students, the unwaged, retired scholars, exhibitors, and those attending for one day only.

For those wishing to register as a student, retired, or unwaged, we require proof of status in the form of a copy of a current student card or official state documentation showing that you are retired or unwaged. If you are retired, you can also send us either a copy of your passport showing clearly your date of birth or a letter from your former employer stating your date of retirement.

You can send your proof of status as a scanned document attached to an email, as a photocopy by post, or by fax. Please note that all letters should be on official letterhead and signed, and that emails alone cannot be accepted as proof of status.

Non-Participating Friends or Family Members

Non-participating friends or family members are not required to pay the registration fee. They may attend the session in which their relative or friend is speaking but they are not entitled to attend the wider academic programme of the Congress. If they wish to do so, they will need to register as a delegate and pay the appropriate fee.

If a friend or family member wishes to accompany you, please inform us in the 'Other Details' section of your IMC Registration Form and a special pass will be made for them. To book accommodation or meals for non-participating family members, please contact the IMC administration. This is not possible through the Online Store.

IMC Name Badge

You will be able to collect your IMC name badge with your registration pack upon arrival in Leeds. Your IMC name badge gives you access to the academic programme of sessions as well as the other activities offered by the Congress.

Please note that the Leeds University campus is a busy environment; you will therefore be required to wear your name badge at all times for security reasons. Delegates not displaying their IMC name badge may be refused admission to IMC sessions or activities.

Methods of Registration

Online Registration

The preferred method of registration for the IMC is through the University of Leeds Online Store. It is possible to book a complete package of registration, accommodation, meals, and any events or excursions through the online store. Payment is processed immediately and you will receive a receipt by email when your registration has been finalised by the IMC administration.

It will not be possible to process a registration for more than one person with the same log-in. If this causes a problem, contact the IMC at, Tel: +44 (113) 343-3614.

Payment for Online Registration are processed in pounds sterling (£) and can be made by:

  • Switch / Maestro
  • Visa
  • MasterCard

All transactions will be processed through a secure server as part of the online store system. For security reasons the University cannot accept any other form of online submission, including sending emails with scanned versions of your form attached.

Paper Registration

If you are not able to register through the Online Store or cannot pay by credit or debit card, a paper registration form is available from the IMC website or can be requested from the IMC administration. Please note that this incurs an additional charge to cover administrative costs. All registrations must be accompanied by payment in full. If the registration is not accompanied by full payment we will not be able to process it or reserve any accommodation, meals, or excursions, until payment for the outstanding balance is received.
