Register for Cleft 2022

We are planning for Cleft 2022 to be primarily a face to face meeting in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland.  We very much hope that colleagues from around the world can participate in person, meet old and new friends, network and have fun.  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic however, we recognise that attending physically may not be possible for everyone, so we are also considering a virtual element to the congress, as well as offering on demand content after the congress.
