We urge interested participants to


as early as possible, for planning the Symposium more efficiently.

Pre-registration does not require an immediate payment; however, it will add your record to our database (for Book of Abstracts, Name Tags, etc.).

The Registration Fee applies to the Symposium Sessions and Workshops. Registration is not considered complete until the Registration Fee is received. In order to take advantage of the early registration fee rate, payment must be made before the end of the Early Registration period.

Please note that your registration fee INCLUDES lunch on the Monday to Friday, coffee breaks Sunday (workshop day) to Friday, the Welcome Reception and poster reception. Registration fee does NOT include the Symposium Dinner. More information will be posted on the website about the dinner in due course.

All Workshops are IN-PERSON only.
All Sessions are HYBRID.
More information is on the Symposium Structure page.

Anyone who before March 1, 2023 was NOT on the list of registrants and who wants to attend in-person will be wait-listed (except for VIPs). All oral and poster presenters who confirmed their attendance with PICES Secretariat are guaranteed in-person participation. Attendance confirmation can be found on the Symposium Website.
