We urge interested participants to


as early as possible, for planning PICES events 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 a buffet lunch on-site during the Topic Sessions (June 4-8). The on-site lunch will provide additional time for networking with both your old and new friends/colleagues.

Registration Fees:

Except for "Workshop ONLY", Registration Fees include access to both - workshop and topic sessions.
