We urge interested participants to pre-register as early as possible, for planning PICES events more efficiently.

Pre-registration is important as it will add your record to our database (for Book of Abstracts, Name Tags, etc.)

Pre-registration does not require an immediate payment; however, to take advantage of the Early Registration Fee you must pay before the deadline (see the table below). Registration is not considered complete until the registration fee is received.

The Registration Fee applies to the Meeting sessions and workshops. In order to take advantage of the early registration fee rate, payment must be made before the end of the Early Registration period.
