The programme is currently being arranged and we would be pleased to hear from you if you would like to give a talk, particularly those who have recently returned from Germany. If you would like to offer a talk, please send a short abstract (up to half a page) at your earliest convenience to the programme coordinators, Dr Joan Leopold and Prof. Rainer Cramer, at Talks should last 20 minutes and be suitable for a general audience. A contribution towards travel costs will be available on request for those giving a talk.


There is a £20 contribution to cover costs associated with the meeting. On registration, details for making an electronic bank transfer will be provided in the automated confirmation message. Alternatively, please send cheques payable to 'UK Alexander von Humboldt Association' to the Treasurer, Professor (em.) John Baines (, at the following address:


109 Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6HL.


Once your cheque or transfer has been received, you will be sent an acknowledgement e-mail and your name will be added to the list of confirmed attendees. The Executive Committee has some funds to contribute towards the costs of those travelling to the meeting from afar, or who may otherwise need financial assistance to attend. If you wish to be considered for this, you should register normally and contact the Treasurer with an estimate of your costs and the reason for claiming support (e.g. young researcher). Support will be arranged via cheque or bank transfer at the event itself.


Please pass this information onto other Humboldtians as their contact details may have changed since the mailing list was compiled.


Kind regards,


Dr Joan Leopold

Professor Rainer Cramer
