Registration for the American Literary West III International Conference (to be held in Vitoria-Gasteiz in October 8-10 2014) will be completed through a new telematic platform sponsored by the University of the Basque Country. Thus, we aim at ensuring that the process is safe and efficient. However, before we give you some more explanations on how to complete the process, take a look to the fee table:

Rates per fee and period
Early bird
(07/04/2014 - 15/09/2014)
Late registration
(16/09/2014 - 07/10/2014)
Presenter - Regular90,00€ 125,00€
Attendee - Student20,00€ 20,00€
Presenter - Post Graduate75,00€ 100,00€
Attendee 80,00€ 80,00€ 

                                      Please, keep this fee table as the right one. There is one error in the English version of the website. 
                                                   The fees for attendees and student attendees are incorrect in the website. We'll correct it as soon as possible. 

At the bottom of this informative post, you will find a direct link to the official website. The process can be done in three different languages (Spanish, Basque or English), so first make your choice. Then you just need to follow the instructions and fill in the required information.

When you proceed to make the payment, you will observe that you have two different options. 

The first one is the online option. You will be directed to a payment platform that keeps all the necessary standards to guarantee that the process is safe.  This is a credit card payment online, so you will be asked to give some specific information about your credit card. 

The second option is called offline payment and it gives you the option to choose other paying methods. If you choose this option you will receive an email with all the information that you need in order to proceed to pay by using any of the following methods: bank transfer, at your bank, again through the same online platform but completing the boxes with the information that you have received by email or paying via ATM or cash point.

Probably, the easiest way to go would be to pay by credit card and that is why we tried to launch this new platform and make the whole process safe and accessible. Still, you are free to choose the option that is more convenient for you. If you choose the bank transfer option please make sure that your payment is indentifiable by adding a message such as ALW14 and your last name so that we easily see that it was your transfer that we got.

Please, note that registration is not final until payment is received. Again, remember that you need to complete your registration and the subsequent payment before attending the conference. For early bird registrations payment must be sent by the deadline date.  

Conference Banquet

Finally, we are happy to announce that we were able to organize a friendly and tasty banquet to celebrate that the conference is over. We will schedule the program so that we are done by Friday at lunchtime. Thus the final banquet will be at 3 o’clock pm the 10th of October 2014. If you want to get more information so that you make up your mind, please follow the two links that you will find after the one to go for registration and there you will find more information on the restaurant and the menu that we have booked. Just as a tip, we will be honored if you finally choose to come and just let us remind you that Basque cuisine is regarded as one of the best gastronomic experiences one can enjoy. In a recent article by The New York Times, they said what follows about Basque cuisine: “For the last decade, Basque cuisine has held a vaunted status in the culinary world.” Feel free to join us and experience it!
