Abstract

Available online 28 July 2006. This has reference to the conference report in Gondwana Research titled, “The 21st Himalayan-Karakoram-Tibet workshop” by M. Yoshida, S. Hasegawa and R.K. Dahal (doi:10.1016/j.gr.2006.04.005). We wish to clarify the following issues regarding the organisation of HKT21: (i) Support to overseas delegates was funded from sponsorship raised by the organisers. From the available funds, 9 delegates had registration fees waived and their accommodation and subsistence paid for. These delegates were all from Himalayan countries (Nepal, India, Pakistan, China). Had we provided full support, i.e. including support for international flights, the funds would have stretched to only 2–3 delegates. We therefore took the decision to spread the resource more widely. Alternatively, registration fees could have been increased but this would have deterred other delegates from attending.
