Conference Registration

Pre-registration is advisable to save time and money, and to ensure your registration package will be available for collection when you arrive. The only registration method available is through the conference web site, as it places your details directly into our database, and where you can pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Diners, Discover, and American Express) through our secure web server. Wire transfers will be accepted only until October 11, 2020, and will be charged a service fee. You will receive all detailed information on wire transfers with your confirmation after you have registered yourself.

Conference Registration Fees

Fees will be posted during late July of 2020. We expect that the fees will not change significantly from past years. All fees and items are charged in US Dollars and are exempt from GST (tax).

Student Discount

To benefit from the reduced student fees a verification of your student status is required. Please provide proof of student eligibility by e-mailing a copy of your student status certificate (official institution letterhead) or ID card (with expiration date) to after you have registered successfully, and bring your original student status certificate letter or ID card when you pick up your conference documents at the registration desk. Both actions are mandatory to be eligible for a student registration. If you do not provide the student status documentation you will be charged the full registration rate.
