The event is organised as a complete two-day package. Your booking includes registration for the two days at the Royal Society, a full lunch each day, morning and afternoon refreshments each day, and wine reception on Monday evening. Regular booking is £200 and we have reserved 50% of the places for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) at the discounted price of £100.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come basis. To secure a place, please book via our booking site and follow the instructions there. If the event is full, please join the waitlist (we hope to release more places as and when the Royal Society lift social-distancing measures).
Refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on whether we can make the place available to a member of the relevant waitlist. Please note that the booking fee includes a non-refundable administration charge of £20 (full place) or £10 (ECR place).

There will be a range of opportunities for ECR participation, including:

Rapporteurs (who will be responsible for providing a written report on the meeting)
Sign-ups and submissions for other ECR events and opportunities will be circulated to those registered for the Festschrift in the spring and posted on this website. We are currently working with Gorilla on another exciting ECR opportunity. More information to follow at the meeting itself, but in the meantime, Jo Evershed, Founder and CEO of Gorilla writes:
"Gorilla are delighted to celebrate Dorothy's extraordinary career. We first worked with Dorothy about 4 years ago helping to gamify tasks for participants with Developmental Language Disorder. Since then she has also shared her experiences of gamifying research with us on several occasions, highlighting the importance of engaging tasks when working with child participants. In part inspired by Dorothy, we've now launched a Game Builder tool in Gorilla so that gamified research is a viable and affordable option for all researchers. We’re excited to include as part of our sponsorship of “Dorothy Fest” a 1 year Game Builder subscription for 3 researchers to allow them to conduct important research in an engaging way with children".
