Accommodation for TAG Deva

Accommodation

There are many hotels and B&Bs around the city, all of which tend to be advertised on booking.com

In addition, you can book accommodation (on a room-only basis, i.e. no breakfast) at the centrally located University accommodation at Sumner House. Enter the promotion code “TAG2018” prior to checking availability.

Chester is a popular tourist destination and therefore we would advise booking accomodation as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Some University of Chester accommodation will be available at a discount rate once registration is open.

TAG Deva update

Well, the call for sessions is now closed and the TAG Organising Committee is busy evaluating what we have received. Thank you all for your support and help in the process so far.

We’ve also worked hard for, what seems to be the first time, offer some guidance on how to go about organising sessions. This is to ensure fairness, equality and inclusivity at every stage of the preparations for the conference, from proposing sessions through to their delivery.

As you will have seen, we aim to have a diversity of session formats, and more news on these in due course.

For now, be aware as session organisers that you will be informed regarding our decision in mid-May and the Call for Papers will go live in the summer.
