Register

REGISTRATION IS OPEN. CLICK HERE.

There are variety of registration categories, at various price levels. There will also be some limited financial assistance  (see the section below).

Registration (in all categories) gains you entry to all the Tuesday-Thursday regular sessions and the Friday field trips, break coffee and tea, lunch, and access to the Networking Cafes (where there will be light food and drinks). (Field trips require an additional €12 for a bag lunch.)

Registration categories

Super Early Bird:  €300
Open to everyone, but available only through 31 January 2019, to a limit of 100 people (whichever comes first). Other than students, this is the least expensive registration category.

Global South: €350 (after 8 April 2019: €425)
If you live and work in the Global South, choose this category (unless you are choosing “Super Early Bird”). For the purposes of defining “north” and “south”, we use this list.

Global North: €400 (after 8 April 2019: €500)
If you live and work in the Global South, choose this category (unless you are choosing “Super early Bird”). For the purposes of defining “north” and “south”, we use this list.

Student: €225 (after 8 April 2019: €350)
Full time undergraduate or graduate student. There is also a free option, if you give us a little work. (See the Financial Assistance section.)

Last minute: €550 
After 1 June, all registrations will be at the “last minute” price.

Cancelation policy:
Super Early Bird: 90% of payment refunded if canceled by 29 January 2019; not refundable after 29 January. (The more strict cancelation policy for this category is because there are a limited number of seats—we don’t want them to be consumed and then canceled, preventing others from using the category.)
Early Bird (North or South): 80% of payment refunded if canceled by 1 May 2019; not refundable after 1 May.
Student: 80% of payment refunded if canceled by 1 May 2019; not refundable after 1 May.
Last minute: No refunds are possible.

Financial assistance

There will be some financial assistance available, but the amount is limited, and will depend on our fund raising. Because the assistance may be limited, and uncertain, we encourage you to take advantage of the Super Early Bird and Early Bird registration category. This category of registration is only available in January, to a limit of 100 seats.
If you would like to apply for travel assistance, write us here: TNOCSummit@thenatureofcities.com, with “TRAVEL” in the subject line.
Include in the email:
  • Where you live
  • A short bio (<100 words)
  • Why you’d like to attend the Summit
  • Whether you could attend with partial help (such as reduced registration) or would require all your expenses to be paid
Decisions on financial assistance will emphasize financial need, people from the Global South, practitioners, and diversity. There will also be some assistance in specific categories (based on the particular source of the money). (By the way, we also are being affected by the U.S. government shutdown, as it is delaying some significant sources of funding.)
We also offer free registration to students who are willing to give us a day of work at the Summit. If you are interested in this option, write us at TNOCSummit@thenatureofcities.eu, and put WORK in the subject line. Include in the email:
  • Where you live
  • A short bio (<100 words)
  • What languages you speak comfortably
