The Meeting Fee 

The standard fee for participating in a meeting is 300 euros. 

No dispensation will be given on the basis of the length of time a participant spends in attendance at the meeting - the cost of participating on one day or all days is the same.

But a Fee Reduction may be considered on other grounds - for more information please see Mangosteen’s Policy on Meeting Fees and Fee Reduction

Note for Prospective Participants working in Developing Nations

The Meeting Fee (or Registration Fee if you prefer that term) covers all of the elements required to bring this international scientific forum into being – fundamental organization, acquisition of venues, provision of projection equipment etc. –  as well Mangosteen’s advice and guaranteed assistance before, during and, if requested, after the meeting. 

The Meeting Fee DOES NOT cover the costs of participants’ accommodation, meals and local/regional transportation while in West Africa.  For further information on this topic please see the estimated cost of attending the meeting - your expenses while in West Africa

Neither does it cover the cost of the visa(s) you may need to obtain, nor, more obviously individual air fares, airport taxes or related costs.                   


Is the Meeting Fee Too High?  Prospective Participants Unable to Pay the Preliminary Meeting Fee 

If you are unable to pay the Meeting Fee, or if you believe it to be too high, or should you have other questions, we ask that you please contact us by email - contact the meeting organizer Dr. Anthony England directly at  We are only too happy to discuss any concerns you may have.


Different Payment, Billing or Meeting Fee Arrangements 

Mangosteen has previously been asked to provide a combined accommodation and meeting charge by a prospective participant in order to satisfy the reimbursement requirements of their particular employer/institution. 

Given that Mangosteen receives the Meeting Fee and an independent West African hotel will take the cost of accommodation, this is not something that we intend to do as standard policy.

However, if you have a similar issue and need us to make special arrangements to accommodate your specific needs we are only too happy to help.  Please contact us by email and state what it is that you need us to help you with.
